Snow disruption across the West Country: full report

Snow is continuing to cause disruption in the region. A night of heavy snow closed many roads and left some motorists stranded.

In Somerset as many as 30 people were forced to spend the night in a village hall after their cars were left stuck on the A39 between Minehead and Bridgwater. Conditions on the roads are now steadily improving. Simon Bagge reports.

Rangers fought snow drifts and blizzard conditions to get onto cleeve common near cheltenham to feed a herd of galloway cattle.

The animals are happy living on the common - they are a highland breed and can withstand intense cold. But they have to be fed and the ice on their water trough has to be broken.

"We are up here every day to feed the cattle but in this weather it's difficult. The snow can blow over the tracks and you can easily get lost.We got stuck in drifts a couple of times getting here. But we made it in the end." - David Stevenson, Ranger.
