Video: the day the snow hit

London and the South East woke up to snow today - and pretty soon the transport chaos began.

Flights were disrupted at Luton and Stansted's runway was closed; rail commuters on overground services and on the tube were delayed because of ice; and on the roads, the AA had thousands of call outs - the 'bulk' of which were in Essex.

Marcus Powell reports on the day the snow hit.
