Spring 2013 saw some of the worst snow the UK has seen in decades. Thousands of farm animals were buried under drifts. The only way to rescue them was by digging them out, by hand, with a spade. Gareth Wyn Jones, a Welsh sheep farmer became the public face of the disaster, after using social media to highlight the desperate struggle to rescue animals trapped deep beneath the snow. He was seen by TV audiences worldwide and earned the nickname the 'tweeting farmer'. He lost 80 of his Welsh Mountain sheep in total, but managed to rescue just as many. Caz Graham has been to visit Gareth on his farm near Conwy in North Wales to see how he - and his sheep - have recovered.
