France's Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve urged drivers "to exercise the utmost caution" and asked people to delay their trips if possible.

More than 2,000 workers will lose their jobs on New Year's Eve because of the collapse of parcel delivery firm City Link, union officials have claimed.
The RMT has been in crunch talks with administrators Ernst and Young today in a bid to hammer out a deal to prevent thousands of redundancies at the firm.
But after being locked in discussions all day, union bosses said they are no closer to a deal.
They have urged Business Secretary Vince Cable and the Government to step in immediately to help broker a rescue package to salvage the jobs.
RMT General Secretary, Mick Cash said: "We want to put a plan together for a Government-backed rescue that protects the business and the jobs it supports. If the Government can nationalise the bankers then they can nationalise City Link, which is clearly in the public interest."
