Snow continues to fall in Calderdale. The latest forecast indicates that it will gradually ease this evening.
The Councils highways team continue to clear main roads as much as possible and will continue to do so until the snow stops. A snow clearing programme will then begin to remove as much snow as possible where drifting has occurred on Calderdale’s main roads.
