Weather Warning and Road Closures in Place in Northwest England Due to Overnight Snow

Motorists in the northwest United Kingdom were warned of dangerous road conditions after heavy snow resulted in icy roads, local media reported.

A Met Office forecaster said: “Icy stretches may be encountered, especially on untreated surfaces, while the odd high-level road may see a further one-two cm of snow.”

In a video shared by James Chaplin, land in Sedbergh, Cumbria, is seen covered in fresh snow. The sky appears clear with the exception of some low cloud cover over snow-capped mountains in the distance. Chaplin said: “A snowy neighbourhood today.” Credit: James Chaplin via Storyful
