Heavy snowfall hits commuters in south Wales

Heavy snow in some parts of the UK has caused disruption, as severe weather warnings are issued for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and south-west England.

Icy roads have proved hazardous for drivers and some weekend sporting events have already been cancelled.

It is the earliest widespread snowfall for 17 years and the cold spell is expected to last two weeks.

The BBC's Hywel Griffith reports from Caerphilly where motorists faced long delays due to the weather conditions.
