Snake Pass open after snow cleared away

Have your say

Motorists abandoned their cars on the Snake Pass because of heavy snow over the weekend.

It was closed on safety grounds at 5pm on Saturday and 24 hours later council ploughs and gritters attempted to clear the snow from the road but were unable to because of the number of abandoned vehicles blocking it.

Police officers had to trace the owners to ask them to move their vehicles.

The road re-opened at 8am today.
