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.

There is major disruption for the morning commute in north Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. There is standing traffic on routes into Sheffield after heavy snow hit just before 8am. Ice beneath the snow is making driving treacherous following heavy rain last night.

Snow and gale force winds are to return to parts of the region less than a fortnight after blizzard conditions brought disruption to schools, airports and traffic networks.

The Met Office said there is a 70% probability of snow or icy conditions hitting parts of England by Friday. Snow storms brought parts of the country to a standstill at the end of January.
