Snowstorm causes major problems on E4

After intense snowfall - with a meter of snow in many parts of Sweden - sections of the E4 motorway were blocked on Saturday afternoon, reports tabloid Expressen.

"Snow plows are running all the time, but as long as it continues to snow it is a problem", says Lennart Helsing at the Swedish Transport Association to Expressen.

Roads in Skaraborg in particular have been a real problem all day. 

The snowstorm brought several accidents. In the Norrköping region four road accidents happened in less than one hour in the morning.
