Weather causes further havoc on A1(M) and A66
12:26am Tuesday 12th March 2013 in News
The wintry weather continued to make conditions treacherous on the regions roads last night.
The A1(M) northbound was closed in North Yorkshire between Barton and Darlington because of hazardous driving conditions caused by snow and ice.
A collision may also have occurred but no details were available.
There were further delays on the eastbound A66 between Cumbria and County Durham after a lorry became stuck in the snow on the western side of Stainmore.
Cumbria police said the snowgates at Bowes and Brough were closed to eastbound traffic. The Highways Agency reported shortly after 12.15am that the road had re-opened after an extra snowplough cleared a way through.
