Police issue travel warning after snow hits Leicestershire’s roads

By Luke Williamson

Leicestershire Police have issued a travel warning as snow hit the county overnight on Sunday [FEB07] and into yesterday.

Roads in the countryside were affected severely with cars becoming stuck as the snow fell, with police warning people on social media to avoid the B5414, near Lutterworth, as the snow settled in before the gritters could spread any salt.

The A6003 was also affected, with more than 40 cars becoming stuck on the road just after sunrise.

The poor weather conditions are not expected to improve quickly either, as temperatures below freezing are forecast for the rest of the week.
