At least two people have died in the UK’s first snowstorm this year. Its speed reached 160 kilometers per hour in some places, the Associated Press reported.
The snowstorm hit the northern part of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland causing it road closures, train delays and power cuts.
Both fatalities were men on whom roadside trees fell.
Arwen’s (snow) storm was accompanied by a strong wind which, as it weakened, moved south of Great Britain said Steve Ramsdale, chief meteorologist of the Met Office national weather service.
Despite the weakening of the snowstorm, the authorities recommended the British caution when traveling planned for Saturday.
