Live Snow hits Devon and Cornwall

Emma Barnett challenged Lord Digby Jones for his claim not a single job would be lost due to Brexit

Today, Yorkshire will see "Freezing fog patches clearing slowly, otherwise cold with sunny spells", the Met Office said.

At around 8.15pm on Thursday, the force tweeted: "We have further reports of vehicles stuck on the #A39 in #Cornwall due to snow".

Cornwall Council said it was having trouble clearing the road due to abandoned cars blocking the path.

The IT specialist has managed to stay warm using a sleeping bag and extra clothes he had packed in his vehicle.

"There's no cars on the other side of the road so it must be completely blocked somewhere", he said.

The gritter drivers are also reminding people not to block smaller roads with their cars.

But after Latham was dismissed for 51 it ignited a collapse in which the last six wickets fell for only 52 runs. Quick bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami once again got early wickets.

The snow, which has been travelling eastwards, has reached as far as Wiltshire, Hampshire, Sussex and Kent, with a few flakes in central London.

Beacham's journey took four-and-a-half hours instead of the normal hour and 45 minutes.

Andrea Child, who has been stuck in a vehicle on the A30 for more than two hours, told ITV News West Country: "There are snow ploughs about one mile ahead trying to clear the roads in both directions".

He tweeted: "For those stuck on the A30 in Cornwall, an intensive effort is under way to clear the carriageways of vehicles to allow the gritters through".

The Met Office says there is a potential risk to life as heavy snow heads for large parts of Devon, with an amber warning in place from 1pm today until 9pm on Thursday. "By running the winter weather timetable, we enable trains to stop and start less which means they are less likely to get stuck".

South East 4x4 Response, a team of highly skilled volunteers, is preparing to rescue motorists who could become trapped in the snow. "Ice is likely in many parts overnight".
