Britain’s ‘big freeze’ brings snow to many parts across the UK, and it has resulted in hundreds of flights being cancelled or delayed on Friday. Up to 10,000 Brits were also left without electricity because of the weather, and roads were closed as conditions caused chaos for drivers.
Around 170 flights were cancelled at Heathrow Airport, London, on Friday morning because of the bad weather.
Wales was also hit badly having received a ‘red’ warning from weather officials. And hundreds of schools were closed in England as a result of the conditions.
Forecasters have predicted that as much as 10inches of snow could fall in parts on Friday afternoon, according to reports.
Warnings were issued which said that people should avoid travel where possible and that if road journeys were being made, individuals should make sure they had warm clothing and provisions with them.
The North West, the Midlands and the South of England, including London, are some of the places in the UK to have ‘amber’ alerts as of time of press.
