VIDEO: How Calderdale enjoyed a snowy winter wonderland

Dreams of a white Christmas finally came true and Calderdale residents quickly got into the spirit of the occasion to enjoy the borough’s winter wonderland today (Saturday).

Young and old alike dusted off their sledges and took advantage of the blanket of snow in Shibden Park.

However, sunny spells are forecast for tomorrow, with highs of 2C and lows of -1C.

But Calderdale Council’s Highways department has announced all routes in the borough will be treated this evening and monitored over night as a

precautionary measure.

Routes will also be assessed early on Sunday morning.

A Met Office “be aware” warning for snow remains valid until 3am tomorrow morning and a warning for ice remains valid until 12pm tomorrow afternoon.
