Europe blanketed in heavy snowfalls - Snow reaches northern Morocco

3 Feb 09 - A blanket of snow covered large parts of western Europe on Monday after some of the heaviest falls in two decades.

Snow flurries brought chaos to parts of Paris and Spain, while three people died in Italy amid adverse weather conditions as the snow reached northern Morocco.

In France, flights were delayed by an average of an hour in Paris's Orly and Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airports. One of Orly's two runways was closed, and the other opened two hours late.

In a small number of cases roads were impassable around Paris and in the east near Strasbourg.

In Italy, Milan woke Monday to a dusting of snow.

Up to 20cm of snow fell in parts of Switzerland, and part of the road around the San Bernardino tunnel was closed.

One to three centimetres of snow fell in Belgium, causing around 400km of traffic jams during the morning peak hour.
