A severe snowstorm brought disruption to traffic and electricity cuts throughout Bulgaria on Satruday, in some areas drifs of over a metre were measured.

Thousands of people are still trapped in vehicles, buses are not running at all and some trains have been cut off with passangers trapped.

Dozens of villages and towns were left without power, even cell phone towers have collapsed in some mountainous areas.

Here are pics from the Borovets ski resort, taken 2 hours ago:
