Snow continues to cause problems in the High Peak

SNOW is continuing to cause problems on High Peak routes, with many main roads still closed.

Derbyshire County Council say the A623 Tideswell Moor, the A537 Cat and Fiddle, the A53 Leek Road, the A57 Snake Pass, and the A515 Ashbourne to Buxton, are still closed.

However, the A5004 Long Hill is now open and passable with care.

Police are warning motorists to keep away from Derbyshire’s Peak District as conditions have worsened during the last few hours.

The A515 between Buxton and Ashbourne is closed for the foreseeable future as the wind is continuing to blow lying snow across the road.

Most of the roads in the Peak District are dangerous and even drivers of 4x4 vehicles are having difficulty.

Slow ploughs are working to clear the roads but there are reports of numerous vehicles stuck in snow drifts.

Police have repeated their appeal for drivers to stay off the roads unless their journey is vital.

The Met Office are not forecasting any further snow for the High Peak.
