A man has told how he was forced to burn old furniture to keep his family warm when they became trapped in the snow at an isolated farmhouse in Wales.
Ben Massam, told BBC Wales his family - including his 16-month-old son - were stranded without power at a farm in Bryneglwys, near Wrexham.
You can walk over the washing line there's that much snow.
You can't see any of the cars, the cars are all buried, and I mean literally buried - they're gone.
It got to the point where I just thought we needed to try to get the baby out to reasonable safety.
The Massams were airlifted to safety yesterday by a helicopter from RAF Valley on Anglesey and flown to hospital, where they did not require treatment.
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.
