Six inches of snow to fall in

Weather warnings have been issued as chaos on the roads saw a school bus collide with lorry. Six inches of snow is set to fall later after -4C overnight temperatures left roads ‘like an ice rink’. The bus and truck collided in Glasgow this morning, with conditions forcing some to abandoned vehicles on the road.

The Met Office suggest large amounts of snow will be on high ground in northern England and Scotland. They issued an urgent weather warning amid fears six hours of snow could be coming as a blizzard battered parts of the UK.

The snow has really been falling in Inverness, Scotland

Manchester, Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside, Yorkshire, West Midlands and Derbyshire should prepare for snow, forecasters say. Meteorologist Richard Miles said: “It’s going to be colder than we have been used to over the last couple of days and Christmas.

“We are going into a period when temperatures will be dropping quite a bit.” We’ll be bringing you the very latest updates, pictures and video on this breaking news story. Please check back regularly for updates on this developing story HERE.
