Police offer advice following snowfall

11:05am Friday 22nd March 2013

SNOWFALL across the county during the night has continued into this morning, and police are urging motorists to take extra care.

Snow has created dangerous and slippy road conditions in many areas, particularly Macclesfield, Congleton and the Cat and Fiddle.

In West Cheshire, roads are particularly affected in the Kelsall Hill and A51 areas.

The motorway network is passable with extra care but delays are expected. 

Cheshire Police advise:

1. Only make journeys that are absolutely necessary.

2. Ensure your car is fully defrosted with full visibility.

3. Maintain a safe and constant speed and avoid sudden braking that can cause your car to skid.
