  • People turning around, abandoning their cars in the middle or on the side of the motorway is not a common sight in London.

    But when the elements are against you, and you still have your summer-tires, the car can only keep spinning.

    It was a strange sight watching the cars drive in 10mph down the M11 motorway. Usually a busy road, packed with cars.

    No Underground, and no planes.

    London was grounded to a halt.
