Snow and ice leave hundreds stranded

Passengers on a train from Charing Cross have the spent the night onboard after it broke down near Orpington in the snow and ice.

South Eastern says it is what the passengers wanted to do even though they were offered a bus.

Gatwick Airport is to stay closed until at least 6am Thursday morning - the airport says do not travel to the airport.

On the M25 we understand 400 lorries are stuck.

Hundreds of schools are closed across Kent, Essex and Surrey.

The advice is travel across the south east only if you have to.
