The snow and cold weather reared its head once again today, causing problems on some of the district’s roads, and forecasters believe there may be more to come during the week.

Police have said officers had to attend a number of road accidents across the district, although none resulted in any serious injuries.

The weather created havoc with the local sports fixtures as football and rugby matches across the district were called off.

Some heavy snow was predicted for yesterday although it was expected to become dry in the evening with a widespread frost forming overnight, with temperatures getting as low as -4C.

And the Met Office has said there is a moderate risk of severe weather affecting West Yorkshire on Wednesday.

Forecasters have said outbreaks of snow may give further falls of between two and five centimetres, while on high ground it could reach up to ten centimetres.

Strong north-easterly winds may also cause some drifting.

Inspector Chris Matthews, of Bradford South Police, said officers attended two minor road accidents on Sunday morning.

He said a car had slid into some railings at about 8.30am in the Cemetery Road area of Bradford, but nobody was injured.

And at about 10am a car slid into a lamppost in Albert Road, Queensbury, with one person suffering minor injuries.

In north Bradford and Airedale driving conditions became treacherous on certain roads, particularly on higher ground, due to the snow and ice.

Inspector Richard Czuba, of Airedale and North Bradford Police, said the snow caused no major disruptions, although officers had to attend two minor road accidents in Eldwick on Sunday morning.

He said: “There was no major disruption at all. We had two accidents but there was no serious injuries – some vehicles just seemed to be caught out by the adverse weather conditions.”

Meanwhile. flights to and from Leeds Bradford International Airport have been affected by the snow, although the airport is still operational.

An airport spokesman has advised passengers to take care on their way to the airport as the adverse weather has made driving conditions hazardous.

The spokesman said: “We advise all passengers to check in as normal although delays may be experienced.”
