Stuck in the snow

With snow causing chaos for many today, one viewer has told us about the nightmare journey he had this morning.

Terry Harvey-Chadwick was on his way from Seascale to Barrow to host a science workshop as part of National Science and Engineering Week... but he didn't get that far.

When on the A595, just south of Waberthwaite, Terry got stuck:

"I was stuck for almost 6 hours before they got to me. Even the snow plough and digger sent to try and free us got stuck in the very deep snow."

"I, and some other drivers, was eventually rescued by the Wasdale Mountain Rescue team and had to walk nearly a quarter mile through the blizzard, wading through snow up to my waist, to reach the rescue vehicles."
