    Freezing snow, wind, and ice from Eastern Europe hit the UK in February 2018, bringing unusually low temperatures. The "Beast" has returned in 2021 with more bad weather.

    An amber snow warning has been sounded in parts of the UK as the country faces heavy snowfalls and 50 mph winds that have caused travel disruptions and power cuts, and left vehicles stranded across southeast England.

    The UK’s Met Office expects the disruptive snowfall and snowdrifts to last until Wednesday.
