The whole of the UK has been buried in snow this week as freezing Siberian winds swept across the country.

Some parts of the UK have been hit by 40cm of snow and the Met Office have issued severe red weather warnings urging people across the country to “take action”.

London has been repeatedly pelted by snow this week and its landmarks have been blanketed by the white stuff.

The fountains in Trafalgar Square have even frozen over as temperatures fell to as low as -4C in the capital overnight on Wednesday.

Sky News host, Tom Macleod said: “Quite an amazing picture live from the centre of London, this is Trafalgar Square obviously, the fountain still going at the top but the vast majority of the bottom of the fountain has frozen over.

“The temperature right now about -1C in central London, it was -3 to -4C overnight so no real surprise that at least the top of the fountains has frozen over.”

London and the rest of the UK are still bracing for more snow brought by Storm Emma, which is currently hurtling towards the south and southwest of England.

Emma is expected to bring strong winds, snow blizzards and freezing rain as it smashes into Britain.

BBC Weather forecaster Simon King warned: “In fact, it is right along the southern coast now that snow is just eased slightly but it is all precursor really to what will be the main event of snow that is going to move in during the afternoon.

“This other red warning from the Met Office which is valid from 3pm (GMT) South Wales this afternoon and in the Cardiff area an in towards Devon and Somerset.
