Delays on road and rail as winter hits the west

By Paul Stokes Last Updated: 12:29am GMT 12/01/2008

Snow showers and heavy rain hit Britain yesterday, bringing travel chaos to roads and train services.
The snow fell on many parts of the south west, causing tailbacks on motorways - with the M5 between Bristol and Gloucester reduced to one lane - while there were heavier falls on higher ground.
Other parts of western England and south Wales were hit by severe flooding after torrential rainfall, leading to major disruption for thousands of rail passengers.;jsessionid=IOMB1WLJA4EHRQFIQMFCFFWAVCBQYIV0?xml=/news/2008/01/12/nsnow112.xml
