Eearlier today, messages of buses stuck on Bradford district roads were also posted on social media.

Queensbury’s bus routes have also been affected by the wintry flurry. A message posted on social media said: “Trio of buses stuck outside at Ambler Thorn, give it a miss folks. Stay home, you’ll not get anywhere.

“Apparently just as bad further down towards Boothtown. Black ice under the snow! Happy days.”
