'Shocktober': Unseasonable snow hits US East Coast


More than three million homes in the north-east of the United States are without power after electricity supplies were knocked out by an unseasonably early snow storm.

One electricity supplier in the state of New Jersey said it could be Wednesday before supplies are fully restored.

Meanwhile passengers on a train were trapped for 13 hours by a rockslide in Massachusetts.

The BBC's Zoe Conway reports.
