The UK’s Big Freeze: Part II … and more to come
Motorists hit for the second time this week – Roads called ‘death traps’

______________________________

5 Feb 09 - Thousands of schools closed, drivers battled blizzards, airports closed their runways, and trains and bus services were once again disrupted after up to eight inches of snow fell overnight in places.

Councils running low on gritting salt have been forced to ration their stocks while suppliers desperately try to import more in from Europe.

AA President Edmund King warned: 'This is a very serious situation with some roads becoming death traps.'

The Midlands, Devon, Wales, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire were among the worst affected areas by the latest snow.

There are fears it could now move to London and the south east, bringing the week to a close as it began - in chaos with transport links almost at a standstill.

Britain's biggest supplier, the Salt Union, has already warned that it was unable to meet the demand despite staff working around the clock.
