ICE and a hard frost has created treacherous road conditions across Cheshire.

Drivers are being warned by police to take extra care and allow extra time for their journeys.

A yellow weather warning is still in place as wintry conditions and possibly more snow showers could be on their way.

The Met Office says colder conditions following Storm Christoph will remain until early this week, when conditions are due to become more unsettled once more

Colder conditions and associated wintry hazards are expected.

Steve Willington, chief forecaster for the Met Office, said: “The exit of Storm Christoph has established a flow of colder air from Iceland and the Arctic. And this is bringing a mix of wintry hazards across the UK.

“In clearer conditions, overnight ice will remain a hazard, while a band of snow is likely to bring falls of 1-3cm quite widely across central areas of the UK."

The A555 Manchester Airport Eastern Link Road westbound has been closed due to ice from the A34 Handforth By Pass, from the Gillbent roundabout to the B5358 Wilmslow Road.

The closure has since been reduced. However one section of the road remains closed due to the flooding now freezing.

This is affecting traffic heading towards the airport.
