The Beast from the East froze Britain

(ORDO NEWS) — Snow and ice cover could cause further disruptions across the UK after the country experienced its deepest “frost extremes” in a decade, causing massive cancellations of occupations, shutdown of businesses and travel services.

On Thursday, February 11, 2021, the country recorded its coldest night in more than 25 years at -23 ° C in the north of Scotland.

About 70 schools were closed across the UK, while many businesses and travel services were canceled or delayed as snow covered the country during the storm. This was the worst frost in a decade, according to local media reports.

On Wednesday, February 10, roads south to Kent were impassable due to thick ice and the M20 motorway was closed in both directions. In the south-east of England, due to icing, there was a massive disruption to rail links.
