UK DOOM: Coldest March Day Ever

Britain faces running out of gas as the intense demand caused by plunging temperatures outstrips supply across the country on what has been the coldest day in March since records began in 1959. National Grid, the operator of the gas pipeline network, has issued a 'gas deficit warning' as the nation ramps up the thermostats while Storm Emma batters the coast, combining with the Beast from the East to bring sub-zero weather, icy blasts and 'blizzard-like' conditions. Devon and Cornwall police have launched a major rescue mission after 300 drivers became trapped in sub-zero temperatures as the storm claimed 10 lives. More than 500 flights have been cancelled in England and Scotland so far, including 157 at London Heathrow, 129 at Edinburgh, 77 at London Gatwick, 67 at London City and 48 at Bristol. A further 194 were cancelled at Dublin.  Source
