December 05, 2012 – BRITAIN – A dusting of snow caused chaos at airports and on roads yesterday as council bosses admitted they had been caught out by the winter weather. Southern England, the Midlands, the North East, Wales and Scotland were hit by a brief snow shower early in the morning after forecasters warned temperatures would plunge to minus 8C. In most places the snow amounted to less than an inch but it grounded more than 40 flights, closed schools and left major roads in gridlock. Five airports, including Stansted and Luton, closed temporarily, leaving passengers stranded.
|Wrecked: The crumpled bumper of a car after it hit another vehicle in a snowy
North East of Scotland near Banchory, Aberdeenshire.
|Wheels go round: Trapped drivers were forced to hop out of their cars and push
when the snow and ice in Essex became too bad.
