Someone better call Al Gore and explain that whole global warming thing to Europe this week as temperatures have plummeted to Siberian depth. Yes, the cold weather front nicknamed the ‘Beast from the East’ continues to spread havoc all around Western Europe, killing dozens of people in its way.

In Scotland the Meteorological institute issued its first ever ‘Red warning’ meaning all travel had to be abandoned.
