A huge blizzard has blanketed the US eastern seaboard in snow, bringing New York and Washington DC to a standstill and affecting some 85 million people.

Up to 40 inches of snow settled in parts, paralysing rail and air links, and cutting power to 200 thousand people.

A travel ban in New York, which saw its second highest snowfall on record, is set to be lifted later on Sunday.

At least 18 deaths, from road accidents but also snow shovelling, have been blamed on the weather since Friday.
