man has been found dead in deep snow today as blizzards and bitter storms battered the UK.
The body of the 27-year-old was found by a farmer in Brierfield, near Burnley, Lancashire, at around 1.30pm.

He is believed to have gone missing while walking home from a night out, Lancashire Police said.
Officers attended the scene and the air ambulance was called to take the body to the Royal Blackburn Hospital as the area was too difficult to access for vehicles because of the snow.

The man has been identified and his family have been informed. A post mortem examination will take place to establish the cause of death.
Chief Inspector Derry Crorken, from Burnley Police, said: 'An investigation is underway to establish exactly what has happened although we do not believe that there are any suspicious circumstances.

'Early indications suggest that it appears to be a very tragic incident where a young man has been out with friends and has become caught up in the weather last night on his journey home.

Trapped: Motorists in Cumbria were left stranded as heavy snow combined with wind to create huge snow drifts


Get me out of here: A motorist had to be dug out of this vehicle by Bay Search and Rescue in Cumbria



Wall of snow: One of the motorists, Tony Morris, described a 'wall of snow; coming down upon the vehicles
'The snow and ice has been severe in the area with many roads not passable. I would urge people to take precautions and only go out if it is necessary and if you do go out then make sure friends and family know where you are and that you have suitable clothing on and your phone with you.

'Understandably this is a very difficult time for the man's family and we have specially trained officers offering them support. Our thoughts are very much with them at this very sad time.'

It happened as motorists had to be dug out of their cars after being covered in a 'wall of snow' battering the UK.

The combination of heavy snow and wind created huge snow drifts of up to 15ft, prompting an emergency rescue in Cumbria as whole roads were engulfed.



Lost in the snow: A wide view of the road shows cars completely engulfed in snow in Cumbria, while a large van is also almost entirely covered
More than 70 stranded motorists had to be rescued by police and emergency rescue services in freezing temperatures last night, before being forced to spend the night in an impromptu refuge within a school.

The chaos is expected to continue today as large parts of Britain woke to five inches of snow, causing widespread travel chaos.
With temperatures predicted to plummet even further tonight, motorists in some areas were told not to travel unless 'absolutely necessary'.
In what is believed to be the coldest March in 50 years, forecasters warned that the unusual March weather could continue into next week.

Weather warnings are in place across the country, with major snow alerts in place across much of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and nearly 60 flood alerts.


Refuge: Most of those trapped were forced to stay overnight at Millom High School, which police opened as a reception centre for those unable to return home. Others who were trapped slept in local hotels



Rescue: Even a digger and a gritter were caught in the storm. Bay Search and Rescue used two ex-military 'snowcat' vehicles to dig out motorists


Invisible road: The Cumbrian roads are almost entirely invisible under the huge blanket of snow that fell overnight
