Staffordshire County Council say they were snowploughing through the night to help keep roads clear and safe.
A band of heavy snow arrived from around 9pm, with two to four inches falling in Stafford and north of the county. Very little snow south of Stafford.
– Mike Maryon, Staffordshire County Council’s highways leader,
It really has been a case of "two counties" with heavy snow in the North and very little falling south of Stafford.With the big thaw and heavy rain expected in the next couple days, we are now preparing for the impact of icy conditions and even the risk of flooding in the county.
