Drivers have been stuck on the M62 motorway over the Pennines overnight due to blizzard conditions.

Several motorists reported being stuck on the key route for six hours, with National Highways warning congestion stretched to eight miles at its worst.

Meanwhile, the weather has forced the closure of more than 1,000 schools across Yorkshire on Friday.

First Bus has suspended services, with North Yorkshire Police reporting "horrendous driving conditions".


Travel, school and power updates as snowfall hits


The A57 Snake Pass between Manchester and Sheffield is closed, as is the A628 Woodhead Pass to the north.

Network Rail said fallen trees had blocked lines between Manchester and Sheffield, meaning no trains could run.

Train operators TransPennine Express and Northern are among those affected by the severe weather, with many services cancelled.
