FREEZING Britain will be buried by the worst blizzards in 100 years today. Drifts of up to 6ft are expected as 60mph Arctic gales batter the country. Motorists and train commuters have been warned to expect chaos while thousands of schools will shut early.
Millions of Christmas cards and presents will not arrive. Forecasters have warned that the storms, which will drop a foot of snow in hours, will be even more serious than the notorious 1962-63 winter and the worst to hit Britain since 1927.
Giant drifts are set to close dozens of main roads. Scores of railway lines will be threatened with long delays and cancellations.
