Drivers and commuters had a difficult journey to work in South Yorkshire and north Derbyshire this morning as several inches came down in the early hours, affecting rush hour. Lincolnshire and other parts of Yorkshire were also hit with lighter snow showers. Here's a round up from across the region
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.
Lincolnshire Police say they've dealt with around 25 road traffic collisions overnight as a result of the bad weather. Officers say there have been 15 incidents since 7am this morning, although there have been no serious injuries. There have been fewer incidents in the south of the county.
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.
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.
There was up to 20cm of snow by Saturday morning. You've been sending us your pictures of the white stuff.Read the full story ›
