Weather: More snow on the way

More snow and biting winds will again hit parts of northern England today, continuing a bleak week for Britain.

North-east England will see scattered snow storms throughout the day add a further five centimetres of the white stuff in higher ground and up to two cms in lower ground.

Coastal areas across England, Wales and Scotland will feel the worst of bitterly cold winds of up to 50mph, which will force temperatures down by around eight degrees.

The worst of the snow storms will hit the north-east of England from Northumberland down to Norfolk, and will be heavier over higher ground in places like the North Yorkshire Moors and Lincolnshire Wolds.

Snow clearing underway in Sheffield

26 gritters as well as tractor ploughs, JCBs and other vehicles are out trying to clear the roads of snow in Sheffield.

Our operations are continuing and will do so until the snow is clear. Roads will be cleared in priority order. We are also doing all that we can to keep the pavements clear. We have been clearing snow from pavements on key city centre routes, around hospitals and around key shopping centres. This work has been ongoing since early morning and we have around 300 staff involved in this.
