Panic spread across the country this afternoon as dozens of men phoned home saying they are snowed in to various bars and cafes.
Harsh weather conditions are to blame as emergency services claim to be unable to help.
“Emergency services are currently stretched to the max dealing with various traffic incidents on the roads.” Claimed a spokesman. “The only thing we can recommend at this time is to stay put and leave at a time when they feel safe enough to travel home.”
Benelux News does not advise anyone trapped in a bar to take any unnecessary risks.
