Following the rescue, Police Force Incident Manager Adam Crockford said:
At about 1am we became aware that about 30 people were stuck on a road that was impassable, primarily because of snow but also because of fallen trees.
Officers from different districts in 4x4s were first on the scene to help.
We asked the local fire station to open up and serve hot drinks and spoke with the council and identified a key holder for a nearby village hall.
It was a group effort by the emergency services and a bit of community spirit.
