MAJOR roads in Warwickshire are at a standstill thanks to the heavy snow that has fallen today (Friday).
The A46 between Stratford-upon-Avon and Alcester was moving slowly on Friday afternoon as cars dealt with the treacherous conditions at Redhill, and there are reports of delays on the M40. Conditions on smaller roads are worse, and cars are travelling slowly all around the county.
With the Met Office predicting up to 15cm of snow falling in the West Midlands today, dozens of schools have shut and people have been unable to get to work.
The conditions shut Birmingham Airport this afternoon, with all flights suspended until 2:45pm, and in Stratford, the Rother Street market was shut down.
A band of heavy snow will spread across Wales to the southwestern half of England on Friday morning. In the Midlands, the Met Office warned, the snow is expected to continue to fall throughout the afternoon and evening.
Stratford-upon-Avon is currently under an amber alert, and expected to have at least 5-10cm of snow, with the possibility of up to 15cm.
The Met Office warned that those areas under red alert are likely to have 20-30cm of snow, with strong winds causing blizzards.
The public should avoid all non-essential journeys and be prepared for travel disruption.
