Police urge drivers to avoid roads near Millom and Ambleside due to snow

POLICE warned drivers in Cumbria to be wary due to wintry weather.

Drivers were been advised on Friday January 31 to avoid roads in the Millom and Ambleside areas due to ice and snow.

Police asked drivers to avoid:

· The Corney Fell Road at Corney, Millom (motorists are asked to use the main A595 road when travelling south until further notice)

· A591 – Dunmail Rise

· A592 – Kirkstone Pass

The A593 at Skelwith Bridge, Ambleside is now open after emergency services attended to assist in a road traffic collision between two vehicles. No injuries reported at this time, believed to be due to weather conditions. The road is only passable with care.

Patterdale Mountain Rescue were called to the incident and have said there is a large amount of snow on roads in the Kirkstone pass area.

Police are urging communities to be prepared, only drive if essential and look out for vulnerable relatives, friends and neighbours.

Pavements can be just as dangerous as roads if they haven’t been gritted or cleared so take care when walking as well as when driving.

Before starting your journey, please check your route, you can keep up to date with the latest situation on the roads by visiting our Traffic Link Map: http://www.cumbria.police.uk/traffic-link-map
