Heavy snow and a severe cold snap have killed at least 36 people across eastern Europe.
Poland, Serbia, Romania, Ukraine, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic have all been hit by temperatures as low as -26C - causing schools to close, roads to be blocked and power cut.

Residents have been urged to stay indoors as local authorities open up hundreds of emergency shelters in a bid to halt the rapidly escalating death toll.

It's horrible, our car wouldn't start today and it took an hour to warm it up.

Everything is frozen solid like a morgue fridge.
