Northern Irish Sheep Farmer James McHenry, who said he was "born to sheep" and has kept the animals his entire life has seen his farmer career will come to an end due to the recent severe weather.
Mr McHenry said, "I realised last night that my farming career is over and I've spoken to other farmers who in something similar and this is it. It's the end of an era. When those sheep in the field are dead, they are irreplaceable."
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.
