    Background: WINTER'S GRIP ON EUROPE - WHERE A RARE SUN SHINES THERE'S SOME RELIEF - AS IN MARSEILLES TODAY (WEDNESDAY) RECOVERING FROM A SNOW-BOUND PARALYSIS - 35 CENTIMETRES, THE THICKEST WHITE MANTLE FOR A CENTURY.

    MOST OF FRANCE'S MEDITERRANEAN TOWNS - USUALLY ENJOYING A RELATIVE WARMTH AT THIS TIME - WERE RECOVERING TOO FROM ONE OF THE COLDEST CHRISTMASES IN LIVING MEMORY. AND EVEN FURTHER SOUTH - IN SICILY THE SNOW COATED EARLY ALMOND BLOSSOM, AND IN SOUTHERN SPAIN, WINTER'S GRIP DAMAGED THE CITRUS CROPS.

    MARSEILLES MOTORISTS HAD TO TRAMP HOME - LEAVING 1,000 CARS SNOWED UP AROUND THE TOWN. OUTSIDE IT, PASSENGERS SPENT THE NIGHT IN THE PARIS - COTE D'AZUR EXPRESS, HALTED BY THE SNOW AND ICE.

    WINTER BLACK SPOT NOTE: IN AMERICA, REPORTS PUT THE ROAD DEATH TOLL AT OVER 600 SINCE LAST FRIDAY.
