School closures North East England

Snow causes school closures and travel disruption - Monday 21 January

The Snake Pass, which connects Glossop and Sheffield is closed, as is the Woodhead Pass and Cat and Fiddle near Buxton.

On the railways, trains between Manchester Piccadilly and London Euston are facing delays after a train broke down near Congleton travelling between Macclesfield and Stoke-on-Trent. Passengers currently looking at delays of around 40 minutes.

Snow and ice are causing disruption to East Coast services causing delays of up to 30 minutes to East Coast services between London Kings Cross and Berwick-upon-Tweed. East Coast Mainline is updating passengers on Twitter via this hashtag: #SnowEastCoast

Northern Rail is also experiencing problems on many lines. There is severe disruption to services between Morecambe, Lancaster and Leeds, as well as on the Carlisle-Settle-Leeds line. The train operator is running rolling updates on its website.
