Storm Filomena blankets Spain with snow and wreaks havoc

Five regions in Spain were put on red alert on Saturday, as winter storm Filomena caused chaos across the country.

The country's capital Madrid was particularly affected, prompting the closure of Barajas airport and leaving hundreds of motorists stranded on roads.

Spain's AEMET weather agency described the weather emergency as "exceptional and most likely historic." Filomena has so far caused the heaviest snowfalls in Madrid since 1971.
