Eiffel Tower closed because the stairs are too icy as snow and freezing rain hits northern France.

The Eiffel Tower has been closed and authorities are telling drivers in the Paris region to stay at home as snow and freezing rain have hit a swathe of northern France.

The company that manages France's most-visited monument said the 19th-century Eiffel Tower will be closed all day Friday and Saturday 'to ensure the security of visitors'.

Workers with hand shovels will carefully clear snow from the intricate ironwork and de-ice stairs and platforms.
