Watch: Rochdale fans don't let snow spoil the show

Rochdale AFC fans woke up this morning to the prospect of their team not playing today, because their pitch was buried in snow.

But showing that their support extends far beyond simply turning up to watch, they got stuck in to make sure the game would happen.

Dozens of them responded to a Twitter appeal by the club to come down and help clear the pitch so that the referee could inspect it.

And after hours of gruelling work they were rewarded by the referee's approval and free tickets to the game.
