Parts of Europe have been brought to a standstill as snow made driving conditions perilous.
Trains were at a standstill on Friday in Germany and Sweden and schools were shut.
The Red Cross helped drivers stuck on a motorway in the southern German state of Bavaria and a nine-year-old boy was killed by a falling tree.
