Heavy snow has caused major disruption in the Czech Republic this week, leaving at least 30,000 homes without power.
Up to 20cm (8 inches) of fresh snow was reported on Monday as fierce wintry storms swept through the central European nation.
As well as burying infrastructure under snow, the storms’ accompanying winds (of up to 145km/h) pulled down numerous trees resulting in further closures to major roads and rail lines.
The city of Kladno, just to the west of Prague, declared a state of emergency.
The snowstorm also affected neighbouring Germany, where organisers were forced to cancel the last World Cup skiing race before the world championships.
