Morning commuters in the Calder Valley negotiate the snowfall

Snowfall hit traffic on the morning commute.

By and large the Calder Valley’s gritted and ploughed main roads saw traffic flowing freely through the flurries, but there were problems and hold-ups on hilltop routes.

In Heptonstall a bus skidded to a halt and car drivers also found routes difficult with reports also of cars skidding into walls there.

Bus services are running on main routes but others have been disrupted by the weather at the start of the day.

The video shows the effect from Todmorden and throughout Calderdale.
