Snow blizzard

European storm: Icy blizzards stall transport networks

The blizzard forced the cancellation of all flights at Dublin Airport on Thursday and the temporary closure of Geneva Airport in Switzerland.

Large parts of the Continent continue to shiver in the grip of a Siberian weather system that has brought the coldest temperatures for several years.

The cold snap has been given various nicknames in different countries.

In Britain it is "the Beast from the East" - with Storm Emma close behind - while the Dutch are calling it the "Siberian bear" and Swedes the "snow cannon".
