HUGE swathes of the country are today facing fresh travel chaos from yet more snow and ice.


The Met Office last night extended wintry weather warnings from the south east to most of England.

It predicted heavy snow and icy roads overnight for London, the south east and East Anglia and icy roads in the east Midlands, Yorkshire, Humberside and the North East.

The worst affected area is likely to be Kent with up to four inches of snow, but East Anglia can expect up to two inches.

Snow showers and ice yesterday were already causing problems with police called to 60 minor accidents in Norfolk.

The latest cold snap in the worst winter for 30 years comes with councils admitting salt supplies are stretched.

The cold has already claimed one famous victim – a 1,200 year-old tree which featured on the BBC’s Countryfile.

The Great Oak at the Gates of the Dead, near Chirk, north-east Wales, is facing the axe after it split down the middle.
