Winter Snowfall - Spennymoor & Bishop Auckland December 2015

Surprise snowfall hit this part of the region today. Rain was forecast but we received around four inches of the white snow, bringing traffic chaos to the areas ungritted roads.

An RTA at Parkhead brought virtual gridlock, alternative routes became covered and inexperienced snow drivers, simply abandoned their vehicles. Making it a nightmare for everyone, by 8pm the roads were generally clear, as the gritters had been in action for several hours by then.
