From the air, a beautiful blanket of snow covers the UK.

A paraglider embraces the storm, taking to the sky for incredible views.

But on the ground, the winter weather caused this gas tanker to overturn.

The crash blocked traffic on the highway as drivers were told to minimize travel.

Freezing temperatures below minus 5 Celsius continue to take a toll at Heathrow Airport as well.

Most planes remained grounded, leaving Christmas travellers sleeping on airport floors.

At least one British Airways plane was allowed to take off after getting a green bath of de-icing fluid.

This winter is on track to become the UK’s coldest in a century, as typically mild weather is replaced by heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperatures.
