Moscow blanketed by record snowfall
Thursday 29 November 2012
A record-breaking snowfall in Moscow has disrupted flights and created havoc on the roads.
The weather service said today that a third of November's typical amount of snow had fallen in the past 24 hours, creating a 4.7in (12cm) cover - and more is forecast.
Moscow's city hall said the Russian capital has not seen a bigger snowfall in November for about 50 years.
Roads in the capital were clogged up and about 70 flights from Domodedovo airport, Moscow's largest, were disrupted overnight.
Today, all three of the capital's airports were working normally.
