Blanket of snow expected in London

Britain will wake up under a blanket of snow tomorrow when up to 25cm falls on higher ground as the bitterly cold weather threatens to cause severe disruption. Temperatures are expected to remain below zero in large parts of the country on what is predicted to be a "messy" day for travel.

Wales and the Midlands are expected to see the worst of the snow, while London and East Anglia are likely see accumulations of around 10cm. Forecasts suggest daytime temperatures will struggle to get above freezing in many areas, with the wind chill making it feel even colder.
