The AA reports a busy morning for call-outs as snow and icy conditions affected this morning’s commute across large areas.

Since midnight, the AA has attended 38 vehicles stuck in snow or ice – mostly across London and South-east England – and has attended more than 5,000 breakdowns nationwide so far today (as at 11:00), currently around 1,200 every hour.

The AA says that some drivers are guilty of travelling too fast and too close.

But, budget savings have to be made again this year. So workers won't be gritting less important roads, unless there's what they call a 'snow emergency'.
