SLEET and snow could bring disruption to West Yorkshire today and tomorrow, forecasters are warning.

The Met Office has issued severe weather warnings for snow and ice, with temperatures expected to plunge to -4C in some areas.

Already, a bus has become stuck in Oxenhope as a result of the icy conditions.

A spokesman said: "A cold and unstable northwesterly airflow will bring frequent showers to many north-western parts of the UK, these turning to sleet and snow quite widely.

"Snow accumulations, with ice an additional hazard, could cause some disruption to travel."

The snow showers are expected to be worst in the Dales, with a widespread frost and icy patches also expected overnight.

Bradford Council's gritting team are carrying out a full grit at 6pm, and another at 4.30am tomorrow, with night patrols scheduled for both Keighley and Bradford at 10pm.

And the icy weather is expected to continue into next week.

The Met Office has also issued an orange cold weather alert, which will be in place until Tuesday.

This warns that the cold blast could pose a risk to the health of vulnerable people and disrupt the delivery of services.

A spokesman for Transdev Keighley reported that one of its buses had become stuck in the Best Lane - Lowertown area of Oxenhope as a result of ice.

He said the service's 500 route vehicles would be avoiding this part of the village.
