Large parts of France, including Paris, grind to a halt. Thousands stuck in their vehicles.Train service, including Eurostar, delayed, and bus services cancelled.
The seven inches of snow that fell over Paris and much of northern France overnight resulted in traffic chaos.
By Wednesday morning a record 460 miles of traffic jams were logged around Paris, with 1,500 lorries stacked up and at least 2,000 motorists stuck in their vehicles.
All bus services in Paris stopped, along with many rail and Metro services. Many roads were also shut.
Oh, the joys of global warming.
