Motorists urged to avoid driving today as snow continues to fall on Somerset roads
Police have advised motorists and HGV drivers to avoid making journeys today unless absolutely necessary.
Around 10-15cm of snow is expected to have fallen by the end of today, making roads dangerous for driving.
While there have been no major incidents on the roads in Avon and Somerset, residents are advised to stay indoors.
If you do have to drive, you slow down and brake, steer and change gear as smoothly as possible to avoid skidding.

Make sure your windscreen is clear and your lights clean and working properly. Check your tyre pressure and your radiator antifreeze levels.
It's probably a good idea to carry de-icer, food, a hot flask, a blanket and a shovel as well.
Think ahead. Tune in to local radio for weather and travel reports, plan your route, leave extra time for your journey and, if you're in doubt - then don't set out.
