Business counts cost of heavy snow

Disruption caused by heavy snowfall will cost UK businesses at least 1bn per day, business groups have suggested.

The Federation of Small Businesses has said that 20% of the UK's working population, or 6.4 million people, would not make it to work.

Stephen Alambritis from the FSB said its estimate of 1.2bn was a cautious one and the actual cost was likely to be higher.
