The head of the World Meteorological Organisation has said that global warming does not mean the end of snow.

Secretary-General Michel Jarraud, stressed that Europe's current harsh winter could not hide the fact of a rise in global temperatures.

He added that this would lead to snow and cold winters becoming more infrequent, but they would not disappear.
