Gritters in Calderdale have been tackling ice and snow drifts as they attempt to open roads in the borough that have fallen victim to the conditions.

A spokesperson for Calderdale Council's highways department said: "Our gritters are still out doing everything they can to keep Calderdale safe and moving.

"They were out clearing roads throughout yesterday and the majority of the primary and secondary routes are now cleared.

"Our snow blowers went out at 6am to start clearing the roads below due to snow drifts."
