Winter's here! Snow falls in the North East


Teesdale in County Durham saw its first snow of the season yesterday after heavy overnight snowfall.

Residents woke up to the wintery scene and commuters were told to take extra care on the roads after two inches of snow fell across parts of the North East.

According to the Daily Express, Scotland saw temperatures plunge to -6C in Kindrogan.

The Highways Agency has warned drivers that they need to plan journeys according to the weather.

The Huffington Post reports that roads minister Robert Goodwill said: "The Highways Agency does all it can to keep the roads open during severe weather. But drivers need to play their part too by making simple vehicle checks and carrying a few important items.

"In very severe weather, drivers need to consider whether their journey is really necessary."
