Forecasters have warned that Britain could be hit with eight inches of snow that could bring travel chaos for motorists on Monday morning. The Met Office said that a bitter Arctic blast will sweep in from northern Europe late on Sunday with the potential to bring huge parts of the country to a standstill. Scotland, upland areas of northern England and the Welsh mountains will bear the brunt of the weather, which could last well into next week. Councils across Britain have already started sending out the gritting lorries as temperatures drop.
