  8. M62 latest: Motorway closed 'into this evening'

    The M62 is likely to remain closed into this evening according to Highways England.


    The agency says there are now wind speeds of up to 90mph and that they've kept the road closed "for the safety of drivers".

    Highways England say the snow has now been cleared from the M62 but they are still spreading salt to keep it free from ice so it can open as soon as winds drop below 60 mph.

    They also revealed that a gap was cut in the barrier yesterday evening so that cars could turn around and continue their journeys.

  9. Warning over thin ice on ponds and lakes

    West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (WYFRS) has warned people to be careful near frozen lakes or ponds this weekend.

    Thin ice

    Fire Chiefs say thin ice can be very dangerous and if anyone were to fall into freezing water it would be a life-threatening situation.

    Cold water shock is a natural human response and causes people to panic and gasp for air but then take in water instead.

    WYFRS says even good swimmers can get into difficulty.

    Quote Message: We would like to remind the people of West Yorkshire about the perils of frozen ponds and lakes and the immediate debilitating effect on the body of falling into cold water" from Asst Ch Fire Officer Ian Bitcon WYFRS

    Bosses at Siemens say Goole is the right place to build a £200m rail factory with the potential to create 700 jobs.

    Siemens has signed a long-term lease on a 67-acre site in Goole to build a facility manufacturing trains for UK operators.
