Farmers across Northern Ireland and Wales are fearing for their future as the snow inflicts untold damage on their livestock.
Some sheep farmers have been trying to dig their flocks out from under deep drifts, but only a few of the animals they find have survived.
ITV News' Marc Mallett reports:
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.
