A huge snow storm hit the east coast of the US this weekend, killing at least 19 people.

In New York, 68 cm of snow fell in under 24 hours, making it the second biggest snow storm to ever hit the city.

Thirteen people were killed in car crashes related to the storm in six states on the east coast; two died of hypothermia in Virginia; three died in New York and one in Maryland whilst shovelling snow.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump said on Saturday that he was so confident of victory in the race for the presidency that he could "stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters".

Speaking at a rally in Iowa, Trump said he would be able to withstand any attempt by his Republican rivals to pass him as frontrunner.

The latest Reuters-Ipsos poll, released on Friday, reported Trump as having the support of 40.6 percent of 582 people surveyed – more than his next four challengers combined.

Ted Cruz held 10.5 percent of the vote, Ben Carson 9.7 percent, Jeb Bush 9.2 percent and Marco Rubio 7.2 percent.

The port of Calais was shut and services suspended on Saturday after about 50 people made their way onto a UK-bound ferry following a pro-migrant protest.

Ferry operator P&O said that the "security incident" was resolved after about two hours and services resumed.

Richard Burnett, head of the UK's Road Haulage Association, responded to the incident by calling for the French army to be deployed to "secure the port and its approaches".

Up to 5,000 people reportedly live in poor and deteriorating conditions in the refugee camp near the Calais port, known as "the Jungle".

Last week, French authorities began bulldozing parts of the Calais camp.

This weekend, police in Dorset searched for the driver of a convertible car who threw a pot of yoghurt at a crochet teacher in a drive-by attack.

Alison Nurton, founder of Butterfly Bright haberdashery, was on her way to teach a crocheting class when a yoghurt was thrown at her from a passing convertible, which then sped off down the street.

"It seems it wasn't an isolated incident as another yoghurt pot was seen on the pavement outside the Crown Pub on the A30 the same night," Nurton commented.

Dorset police told local media they were unable to comment on the incidents.
