Stagecoach said its buses are only operating on main roads in Chesterfield today because estate roads in the town 'are still dangerous on all routes'.

The A628 Woodhead Pass is closed in both directions between Tintwistle and Flouch and motorists are being advised not to use the M62 to get across the Pennines because of the condition of the road.

Motorists spent hours trapped in their vehicles there last night due to the snow.
