Weather warnings as snow causes traffic chaos in parts of Cumbria
Last updated at 10:05, Tuesday, 05 February 2013
HEAVY snow in parts of Cumbria is causing severe disruption on the region's roads.
Barrow, Ulverston and Millom are unlikely to be unduly troubled by the weather but the snow is heavier in parts of the Lake District.
Weather warnings are in place in parts of the county and travel is being affected in the east of the county.
Exit slip roads at junction 37 of the M6, near Kendal, are closed due to the snow. The Kirkstone Pass, A592, has been closed because of snow between the Troutbeck junction and the Hartsop junction.
There is a wider reaching warning that the cold conditions could lead to ice on the roads and motorists should take care.
