There were reports in the media that nearly 55 people lost their lives due to the storm around Europe. Armed forces were called in By UK government for the rescue operations and to clear the snow from the highways.

Hundreds of vehicles were stranded on the A303 highway from Somerset to Wiltshire. The drivers and passengers were struck for nearly seventeen hours as they were unable to move ahead with the continuous snowfall.

A met department official said that the heavy snow showers from Siberia which are called 'Beast from the East' hit the UK on Monday.
