Drivers have once again been warned to take care on roads across the north-east of England as the wintry weather continues.

Overnight there was significant snow in Morpeth, Northumberland, and areas north of there but most other parts escaped significant falls.

There is widespread ice on roads and motorists have been urged to take care.

Some flights at Newcastle Airport have been disrupted and passengers have been advised to check with their airlines.

Northumbria Police said the A1 between Westerhope and Blaydon was very icy, as well as the slip road from the A1 to the A69.

The force said it had received a small number of reports of skidding vehicles.

At about 0730 GMT they received a report of two lorries stuck on the A1 at Felton in Northumberland, causing a tailback.

Train services on the East Coast Mainline have also been disrupted.
