A man found dead in deep snow after he tried to walk home in severe weather was named as Gary Windle, 25, by police today.
His body was found by a farmer in Brierfield, near Burnley, Lancashire, at around 1.30pm yesterday. His age was originally reported as 27.
Lancashire Police said his death was not being treated as suspicious and described it as a "very tragic incident".
The wintry conditions are now expected to last well into April with this month on track to become the coldest March since 1962.
A group of students from Wolverhampton who were stranded in extreme snow in Scotland for more than three days tell their story of survival.
Cold weather can pose a real health risk to older and disabled people, but everyone can gain from preparing their homes for the cold.
