Fresh UK snow causes widespread disruption, salt shortage looms
Snowfall continued to play havoc across the UK amid warnings that some councils faced dwindling salt supplies to help keep traffic moving.
The new falls after the heavy snow earlier this week added to concerns about dwindling salt supplies and threatened further disruption to public transport, schools and businesses.
Heavy snow falls overnight in the Midlands, South West England and South Wales caused further chaos for the country - and there are fears that Britain is running out of salt and grit to keep roads clear.
Roads, airports and schools were closed as local authorities struggled to cope with snow falls of up to 4ins (10cm).
The runway at Nottingham East Midlands Airport was closed as staff worked to clear away snow, while London Luton Airport was also warning passengers of delays while its runway was cleared.
