A Royal Air Force (RAF) helicopter was deployed in Northern Ireland in a bid to reach remote farms where estimates suggest up to 10,000 animals have been buried beneath snowdrifts 20 feet (six metres) high. Thousands of cattle and sheep are already feared to have died in the cold at the height of the lambing season. The bad weather has claimed at least two lives on the British mainland.
