Smog shrouds many cities across continent

A combination of extreme cold and still weather has left many countries shrouded in smog. Authorities in France have ordered half of private cars off the roads in the capital Paris. Several cities in Britain and Northern Ireland are experiencing very high levels of air-borne particles.

Toxic clouds forced the cancellation of around one hundred flights at London's Heathrow airport for the second consecutive day. Eastern Europe has been hit by a blanket of smog as well. In Hungary, an emergency situation has been declared in some 20 cities. Poland saw record-high levels of pollution in its eastern city of Krakow.
