Wintry weather has caused disruption across parts of the United Kingdom, with roads blocked by snow and services suspended.

Motorists were urged to put off all non-essential journeys on Thursday as Britain braced itself for further snow and icy conditions.

Forecasters have warned more snow is expected after blizzards disrupted travel and closed schools - and it could be the coldest spell for two years.

Rain and strong winds battered the country while many areas have been blanketed in snow, while tornadoes have damaged home and cars in Cronwall, Pembrokeshire and north London.
