3rd February - Today's News: More Deaths as European Freeze Continues

Britain shivers at -11c as cold snap brings snow - there was a good covering in parts of Lincolnshire, for example, overnight. Temp in Evesham dropped to -7.1c - the lowest since the 31st January 2011. Still looking good from some fairly widespread snow across England - including the Vale - tomorrow night.

But we'll see nothing like they've had in many parts of Europe where cold weather death toll passes 100 in Ukraine and Serbia says 11,000 people trapped in remote villages by snow. Elsewhere, Cold and snow wreaks havoc over Sweden whilst Norway numbed: mercury drops to -37 degrees and in Germany, freeze deepens to minus 20 celsius and snow. As the cold spreads south there's also a Costa del Sol weather warning. And it's be quite funny if it wasn't, sadly, so deadly serious, as Mini names lethal cold front 'Cooper' in PR gaffe. But the end is in sight for some; temperatures return to near 'normal' as Bugaria's big freeze ends.
