Police warn HGV drivers and motorists not to travel in snow
Avon and Somerset Police are warning motorists, in particular heavy goods vehicles, to avoid making journeys unless they are absolutely necessary.
The police force has warned that around 10-15cm of snow is expected to have fallen by the end of today, making highways dangerous for driving.
A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Police said: "While there have been no major incidents on the roads in Avon and Somerset we are advising to stay indoors.
"If you do have to drive, we suggest 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.
