Amazing Video

By Lauren Fruen

THIS mesmerising time-lapse video shows London being coated in snow by the ‘Beast from the East’.

The incredible footage was filmed from Novotel London Canary Wharf – a 39-storey skyscraper with 360-degree views of the city.

In the time-lapse video, you can see snow cover London in a thick white blanket, with the Shard, Walkie Talkie, Gherkin and South Bank clearly visible.

The clip was taken overnight and in some sections the whole city is covered by a snow cloud, covering up its famous landmarks.

Heavy snow has hit large parts of Britain with blizzard-like conditions and thousands of schools shut.

Storm Emma is now making its way across the Atlantic threatening to unleash even more carnage.
