Snow causes hazardous road conditions for motorists

Drivers in East Yorkshire and North East Lincolnshire have been urged to take care after snow and ice caused treacherous road conditions.

Weather forecasters predicted between 2-5cm of snow overnight, leaving an icy start to the morning rush-hour.

Humberside Police closed roads near Stamford Bridge and Fridaythorpe for several hours after accidents.

On Thursday, there were two crashes, on the M62 in east Yorkshire and the A15 in north Lincolnshire.

There have been no serious injuries reported.
