London:

Three of Saturday's English Premier League fixtures have been postponed because of concerns for the safety of spectators making their way to grounds in freezing conditions.

The Fulham v Portsmouth, Sunderland v Bolton and Burnley v Stoke matches were all called off on Friday.

Liverpool recommended that their encounter with Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday should also be called off and were awaiting confirmation from the league authorities before confirming the postponement.

With much of Britain blanketed in thick snow, almost half this weekend's fixtures in England's lower divisions have been called off and only a handful of matches have survived in Scotland.
