Romans saw their first snow in years today as the ‘Beast From The East’ (Europe’s very own Polar Vortex which is bringing Siberian temperatures to the west of the ‘old continent’ for the next week) hit the ‘eternal city’ and covered it with a thin white blanket. It made for some lovely pictures.

In Britain, people were told to leave on time from work as heavy snow was bound to interrupt evening traffic.

London commuters were warned that trains and buses had already been cancelled and everyone was urged to ‘leave before 6pm’ as forecasters claimed that certain parts of Britain would feel colder than the Arctic Circle due to the coming low temperatures and high winds.

Police were quick to point out that the setting snow might help them find some cannabis factories.
