Pictures: Snow falls across parts of the region

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.

A family of six has escaped without any major injuries after the weight of snow apparently caused the gable end of their house to collapse in Barnsley.

The fire brigade was called out at about 4am today to the property on Wood Street in the town. Officers from Barnsley and Cudworth fire stations attended the incident.

It's thought a couple and their four young children escaped from the semi-detached house unhurt. They have now been moved to emergency accommodation.

Builders have today been working to make the property safe.

The icy grip of the wintry weather seems to be abating but the cold snap is still causing problems for those in isolated areas, and the dedicated workers manning A&E departments around the region.

As many tried to get back to normal, with school closures significantly down on yesterday and only minimal transport delays, some hospitals were seeing an increase of patients suffering from the effects of slips, trips and falls.

David Hirst has been to one hospital in Keighley, and also met members of the Red Cross - on standby to help those in need.
