No snow disruptions for Bristol and South Gloucestershire

Bristol and South Gloucestershire have avoided the worst of the snowfall which has hit many parts of the UK.

Drivers are being warned to take extra care on the roads as snow which fell across the districts could have frozen in sub-zero temperatures overnight.

At Bristol Airport, arrivals and departures are running on schedule.

Gritting teams were on standby overnight in South Gloucestershire to salt the roads and plough where snow settled.

Approximately 14,000 miles of roads in the county are treated each year from stocks of over 6,000 tonnes of salt.

Elsewhere, heavy snow caused widespread travel disruption across England with up to 100 motorists stuck on the M40 for more than three hours.
