Paris was covered by snow as Charles de Gaulle-Roissy airport was forced to shut, while Orly airport was briefly shut, and the bus network was also paralyzed. Motorways in the Paris region were described as impassable.

Heavy snow forced the operators of the Eiffel Tower to close on Wednesday. The 1,063ft tourist attraction was shut as salt cannot be used on the tower as it would damage the iron structure. The Eiffel Tower gets around 12,000 visitors a day at this time of year.

Severe weather has brought misery to parts of the continent, with snow closing the main airport in Paris and a flash flood causing the death of a boy in Spain.
