A bit of snow in the south east has apparently caused electrical failures on the railway line through the Channel Tunnel. Services have been suspended until further notice. Many airports are also closed and flights grounded due to snow on the runways. Bad news for anyone hoping to leave the UK for Christmas.
Every winter we have snow and ice. It's cold, it's wet and it freezes. Any child knows that. Yet in Britain we still don't seem to have learned how to design transport systems that can cope with it.
