Snow turns to ice across Yorkshire


8:09am 6th February 2012

North Yorkshire Police have been responding to more than 60 road traffic incidents across the county since the snow hit on Saturday.

Now the snow has turned to ice causing dangerous driving and walking conditions.

The A1M is experiencing some of the worst problems.

Both the south bound and north bound carriageways have been closed in different places because of dozens of jack knifed lorries and abandoned cars.

The A1M south bound is shut between Dishforth and Boroughbridge around Junction 49.

It's also closed between Catterick and Leeming.

The A1M also has huge problems North bound, It's closed from Junction 47 between Boroughbridge and Leeming but it's queuing all the way back to Whetherby.

There are also big delays on the A168 near Thirsk as drivers try and get on the A1.

So if you are traveling take extra care as black ice has formed on many of the roads overnight and the snow has turned to ice.
