Patrols will continue through the night during which more light snow is expected.

But, as temperatures fall below freezing, ice is expected to be the major problem.

Road Traffic Sgt Rick Lyon said he had been out in Calderdale during Saturday afternoon and he urged motorists to have more concern for the conditions.

“Some cars are travelling a little too fast,” he said.

“Drivers’ shouldn’t get complacent as temperatures are still very low.”
