Snow has hit parts of West Yorkshire tonight, as severe winter weather continues to batter the county.

Emergency services who have been focusing on flooding problems caused by Storm Christoph are now having to turn their attention to difficulties created by snow, with Calderdale among areas worst hit.

Areas of Kirklees have also seen flurries, while the snow had also arrived in the Bradford district by around 10pm, with residents in Buttershaw, Thornton and Addingham among those reporting snowfall.

Inspector Ben Doughty, based in Calderdale, tweeted: "Just left our #partnership flood control room.

"What do I see on one of the flood cameras.... Snow ❄️!!!

"Take care out there and drive to conditions."

Traffic Dave, of West Yorkshire Police, tweeted: "Snowing at J22 Rishworth M62 "@HighwaysYORKS gritters are out doing their stuff!

"Slow down, keep safe."

Bradford Council tweeted: "While the rain continues this evening, we are expecting sleet in the early morning which could lead to ice on higher ground. Our highways patrols will be out throughout the night and crews will be gritting higher level routes from 5am."

One resident responded to say it was snowing in Thornton.

The snow has led to the closure of a route on the border between Derbyshire and Yorkshire, with the Snake Pass currently closed.

The North-West was hit by heavy snowfall before the snow arrived on this side of the Pennines, with Manchester, Stockport and Oldham among the areas to be affected.
