BBC News - Snow causes travel and power disruption

BBC News - Snow causes travel and power disruption: "Snow and sleet have disrupted transport and power supplies as severe wintry weather continues in much of the UK.

In Lancashire, the body of a 27-year-old man has been fond in deep snow in farmland near Burnley, police say.

A number of roads and airports have closed, with many of the weekend's sporting fixtures affected too.

A Met Office warning for snow covers Northern Ireland, much of England, northern Wales and south-west Scotland.

Motorists were trapped in their cars overnight in Dumfries and Galloway and 35,000 homes in Northern Ireland are without electricity.

It follows snowfalls across parts of the UK on Friday which also led to the closure of hundreds of schools"
