21 Dec 09 - Snowstorms and sub-zero temperatures have killed at least 30 people across Europe and severely disrupted air, rail and road transport.

Moscow said it was deploying 9,000 snow ploughs to clear the city's streets.

In France, 40% of flights out of Paris's Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports were cancelled as a second wave of snowstorms hit the country's north.

Germany's third largest airport - in Duesseldorf - was closed because of the heavy snow, as were Belgium's three biggest airports - Brussels, Charleroi and Liege. Meanwhile, Amsterdam's Schiphol airport reported severe delays and cancellations..

Manchester Airport - the busiest outside the London area - suspended flights for 90 minutes as staff moved snow and de-iced a runway.

The weather also affected rail travel across northern Europe, with Austrian trains brought to a standstill because of frozen points.
