Fresh snow across UK brings more disruption

Fresh snow has hit many parts of the UK, causing more problems for transport amid further limits on road gritting.
Met Office warnings of heavy snow remain in place for north-west England, the West Midlands and southern England, although milder weather is forecast.
Rail and air travellers have again been hit by delays and cancellations, while several roads were closed.
Hundreds of schools did not open and pupils taking exams endured difficult journeys on treacherous roads.
A flight taking more than 60 rescue experts, equipment and search to earthquake-hit Haiti was first to take off when Gatwick airport's runway reopened at 1515 GMT, having been closed all day.
Some rural communities remain cut off, while others are coping with power cuts, water leaks, increasing numbers of potholes and cancelled rubbish collections.
