A covering of snow has brought some disruption to roads around the Bradford district this morning.
There were no reports of any school closures as of 7am, but there were some issues for motorists and commuters.
The A658 Pool Bank New Road Westbound was reported to be blocked, with queueing traffic due to ice and snow between A659 Arthington Lane and Old Pool Bank. The road up the hill towards the airport only is affected.
Flights at Leeds Bradford Airport have been suspended because of the poor weather conditions and passengers are advised to contact their airline or tour operator before arriving at the airport.
An accident has also partially blocked Woodhall Road in Calverley.
A mix of bad weather and engineering works also led to misery for the area’s rail commuters this morning.
And snow caused the late running or cancellation of several services on the Ilkley/Bradford line and the Leeds/Bradford line, and led to the Leeds/Manchester Victoria train to terminate at Bradford Interchange.
The north of England and Scotland are forecast to see up to eight inches of snow build up between tonight and Wednesday morning, with temperatures dropping as low as minus 15C (5F) overnight.
