The 'Beast from the East' and the early stages of Storm Emma are wreaking havoc on the UK at the moment, with red warnings issues for south-east England for the next 48 hours. Motorists have been experiencing plenty of delays on roads and motorways around Britain as drivers continue to grapple with the adverse conditions.

The Met Office warned that travel, including road, rail and air, would be affected by this double whammy of storms.

"A spell of heavy snow and blizzard conditions is expected," the weather forecaster said in a statement.

"The snow will be accompanied by very strong easterly winds leading to severe drifting. Some places could also see significant ice build up due to freezing rain from later on Thursday evening, most likely in the south of the area.

"Long delays and cancellations of public transport seem highly likely. Some roads are likely to become blocked by deep snow, stranding vehicles and passengers."

A 46-year-old driver died in a collision on the A34 near Tot Hill Services while another motorist died following a crash in Berkshire.

Thankfully the storm is supposed to ease for the weekend, but keep in mind there are yellow warnings that apply for virtually everywhere in England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.

On Sunday that warning only applies to the eastern coast of Scotland - with everywhere else expected to finally have a bit of reprieve.
