Britain is bracing itself for the coldest night in almost a decade with bone-chilling temperatures expected – as forecasters warn the black ice danger will last until Monday.
The big freeze is expected to continue this weekend, with the Met Office warning Scotland could see lows of -16C (3.2F) over Saturday into Sunday.
Parts of England are also expected to see sub-zero temperatures reach double digits, with a yellow weather alert in place across much of the south and East Anglia until 11am on Sunday.
It warns of ‘icy stretches on many untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths’, and says there is an increased likelihood of accidents and injuries.
This evening, around 30 motorists were stuck on Birk Brow in North Yorkshire as heavy snow showers continued to hit the area.
Rush hour commuters were unable to travel up or down the steep bank due to icy conditions – with locals and farmers appearing in force to help the stranded motorists.

Snow which has been lying on the ground, and has partially melted, could refreeze and cause icy conditions as the temperature drops as low as -10C in southern England tonight, experts warn.
Forecaster Simon Partridge said: ‘Tonight is a pretty dry night, dry with a lot of clear spells which means it is going to be a very cold night as well.
‘The showers [of sleet, rain and snow] we have got across East Anglia at the moment will drift offshore overnight.’
Mr Partridge said the mercury could drop as low as -10C in southern England, with a potential of -16C in eastern Scotland.
‘If that happens it would make it the coldest night since 2010,’ he said.
But the plummeting temperatures will be short lived, with milder air expected to push its way across the country from Sunday, the Met Office said.
Mr Partridge said 3C is expected in North East Scotland during Sunday, with 10C likely in the South West of England.

‘That is the beginning of milder air pushing its way in across the UK next week,’ he said.
‘As a result it will be more unsettled, so windier and wetter weather through the week, so back to our normal winter.’
This afternoon, a clean-up operation was underway, as yesterday’s heavy snowfall brought down trees and wreaked travel disruption – with roads in Kent particularly badly affected.
A shopping centre in Bath also suffered significant damage, when part of its roof collapsed under the weight of the snow spewing debris onto the ground below.
But the wintry conditions haven’t stopped some from making the most of the scenery, with one couple spotted enjoying the scenic views of the Angel of the North near Newcastle, and others seen sledging across country lanes.

Describing this weekend’s freezing weather, meteorologist Alex Burkill said: ‘It’s likely to be very similar to Thursday night – we could get down to -16C (3.2F) in Scotland, but it’s worth bearing in mind that even across the south we could get into negative double figures.’
Mr Burkill said Benson in Oxfordshire was one of the spots predicted to reach -10C (14F) or below. ‘Across the bulk of the UK, tomorrow night’s going to be really cold.’
This morning, South Western Railway warned of delays due to the heavy snowfall, with Kent Police describing an ‘incredibly busy night’ as a result of multiple vehicles stranded on the A229 and A249.

There were reports of drivers stuck past midnight on some routes, with issues reported on the A21, A229 and A249 in Kent, as well as the A339, A30 and M3 in Hampshire.
It comes one day after airports were forced to close and hundreds of cars were left abandoned on blizzard-hit motorways – with drivers told to avoid the M3 at all costs due to it becoming ‘impassable’ at points.

Parked family car slides down driveway as freezing temperatures turn road to ice
A car appeared to have a life of its own last night , when it mysteriously slid down a London driveway following days of wintry weather.
The bizarre incident took place in the Barnehurst, while Rusty Perry and his family were fast asleep inside their home. They only noticed their vehicle had moved when they woke in the morning and rushed to check the CCTV.
Fortunately for them, the movement of the car was due to compacted snow shifting underneath the weight of the vehicle – and not crooks attempting to make an icy getaway.
On Friday, a coating of up to 14 cm of snow caused havoc in the South West, forcing motorists to abandon their cars and seek shelter as traffic stood still.
In Bath, the weight of the snow even caused the roof of a shopping centre to collapse with debris narrowly missing one unsuspecting shopper.
The wreckage from The Corridor fell from a height of approximately 20-30 feet. Some of the chunks that fell from the roof were nearly a foot long and approximately eight inches thick.
Travellers were hit by long delays and schools closed their doors as February began with the coldest night for seven years. By Friday evening, RAF Odiham in Hampshire had recorded 19cm of snow.
The closures included more than half of Bristol’s schools, more than 300 in Buckinghamshire, more than 150 in Cornwall and scores across Oxfordshire.
There was misery for travellers on the blizzard-hit M3 westbound between junctions six and seven near Basingstoke due to snow and stranded vehicles, with the tailbacks stretching to Farnborough.

Bournemouth Airport and Bristol Airport were shut with rail lines closed as blizzards battered the UK. Snowfall and icy conditions will cause widespread travel disruption this morning after temperatures plummeted.
In Devon and Cornwall, hundreds of motorists blocked roads after abandoning their vehicles following the arrival of ‘snowbomb’ – but the sea of cars, lorries and vans meant gritters and emergency vehicles failed to get through.
On the A30 crossing Bodmin Moor, more than 100 people were stuck in their cars for ten hours. Some slept inside their vehicles while others made it to the famous Jamaica Inn pub where they spent the night on makeshift beds.
Dominic Burton, 20, was among the stranded and said: ‘It’s like doomsday here, like a zombie movie. I have just passed around 200 cars trying to go southbound on the A30.’

A pivoting system of wintry weather saw much of southern England and Wales wake up to more of the white stuff.
An amber warning was issued for an area west of London including Oxfordshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire, with stranded vehicles and power cuts ‘likely’, and a ‘good chance’ some rural communities could be cut off.
The alert comes after as much as 5.5in (14cm) of snow wreaked havoc in the South West yesterday. Efforts to rescue motorists stranded on snowbound roads in Devon and Cornwall continued through the night.
Meanwhile hundreds of people were forced to find shelter where they could. Persistent snow began to spread across the south east late last night and flurries were seen all the way into central London.
The Met Office has also has two yellow weather warnings of snow and ice in force until this afternoon covering southern England and Wales, as well as the eastern edge of the UK from Shetland to The Wash.
Police forces across the country are warning motorists to consider if their journeys are necessary before heading out today and be ‘extremely careful’ if have to travel by road.
On the rail network, Southeastern and Transport for Wales have altered their services today as a result of the adverse conditions.
South Western Railway was planning to run a normal timetable, but warned some early services may need to be cancelled as routes are cleared.
Meanwhile Southern, Thameslink, Great Northern and Gatwick Express were expected to run normally, although all passengers were urged to check before they travel in case the conditions impact services.
Transport for London also advised passengers to check their service status before setting off. Airports were also hit by the freezing weather, with Bristol Airport suspending flights until 8am while the runway was cleared.
Bristol Airport has said its airfield will remain closed until 12pm.
The airport said on Twitter: ‘As a result of continued adverse weather, our teams are working hard to clear the airfield… A further update will be given as the situation changes. Please contact your airline for specific flight queries.’

Met Office meteorologist Emma Smith said: ‘There is still sleet and snow across southern counties, the band is currently sitting across the south-west and Wales and across to East Anglia and London.
‘It’s kind of pivoting in place and it’s not really moving very far. What will be happening to it is it will get patchier as it goes on, but it could cause some disruption to rush hour.
‘Temperatures are widely below freezing so there’s icy stretches so people will have to take care going into work.’
By lunchtime temperatures in the South East are expected to nudge towards 4C (39F), meaning the sleet and snow should turn to rain.

How to stop your car freezing over with a BAG
With Britain waking up to sub-zero temperatures, many of us will be spending time de-icing our cars.
But one way to stop this happening to your mirrors is to tie a plastic bag over them with an elastic band.
When you take off the bags in the morning, the mirrors should not require de-icing, even if temperatures are below freezing.
The RAC advises that clearing a windscreen of ice or snow should take about ten minutes using a scraper or de-icer spray.
Drivers should avoiding using boiling water to clear snow and ice. The thermal shock from 100C water can cause windows to crack, the breakdown firm says.
‘Into the afternoon those showers will go into the Pennies and the Peak District as well,’ Ms Smith said.
The Met Office said a low of minus -15.4C (4.3F) was recorded just before midnight at Braemar. Had it fallen more than 0.2C, lower it would have surpassed the low of -15.6C (3.92F) set in 2012.

Shoppers stuck for two hours in Tesco gridlock
Panicked shoppers stocking up for snow were stuck for more than two hours – when their supermarket sweep caused gridlock.
Worried shoppers rushed to grab bread, milk and other essentials from a Tesco Extra in Cardiff.
But the ‘vast number’ of people caused gridlock in the supermarket car park – leaving them unable to leave for hours.
One customer said: ‘It was gridlocked. Thank heavens I have got heated seats, it was horrendous.’
Another woman said: ‘Two hours to get out of Tesco Western avenue cardiff car park this PM. Asked the customer service assistant in store what was happening; the response? ‘Not our problem’.’
A Cardiff council spokesman said: ‘It appears that due to the current weather forecast, a vast number of people have visited the store to buy groceries.
‘We believe this is the reason why there has been a tailback of vehicles leaving the car park which has caused the delays that are being reported.’
‘People were fed up of being in a cold car and they were running out of fuel.’
Each of the inn’s 36 rooms was full, with some being shared by complete strangers on Thursday night.
Meanwhile makeshift dormitories with mattresses on the floors were set up in other parts of the pub, including 15 beds in the restaurant another five in the lounge.
Paul Drye, 54, from St Austell, Cornwall, was heading home after working in Dorchester, Dorset, on Thursday afternoon when he became stuck on the A30 around 3.30 pm.
He said: ‘There had been a bit of heavy snow but while everything was moving it was fine, but as soon as there was a few incidents up ahead everything ground to a halt.
‘You never know how long these things are going to last, whether it will be moving in two minutes or four hours as it turned out.’
Mr Drye arrived at the Jamaica Inn around 7.30 pm and was met with a real ‘cross-section’ of people including dogs, children and truck drivers.
‘People were still arriving until the early hours of the morning, people who had left their cars and walked, a couple miles some of them,’ he said.
The Jamaica Inn staff were like a ‘well-oiled machine’, they provided mattresses, blankets and pillows for everybody and stayed up all night stoking fires, Mr Dyre said.
Woman, 23, seeks shelter at Asda after being trapped by snow while going into labour on the way to hospital
Baby Amelia is said to be doing well after her mother sheltered in an Asda during labour yesterday as the snow hit Cornwall
A pregnant woman who went into labour was trapped by snow on the way to hospital – and was forced to seek shelter in an Asda supermarket.
Roxanne Campbell, 23, was travelling to a maternity unit after her contractions and a ‘slow labour’ started when a sudden flurry brought travel chaos to the UK.
Her and husband Alex, 39, left home in Bodmin in Cornwall at 11am and were waiting for a train to Truro so they could get to the Royal Cornwall Hospital.
But the services all got cancelled and they called an ambulance but were told there were none available and they would have to seek shelter. Their only hope was a nearby Asda store, where they arrived at around 4.30pm and were looked after by staff while she experienced contractions.
Only several hours later did an ambulance finally show up to rescue Miss Campbell and help her through the final stages of labour. They are now recovering from their ordeal in hospital and baby Amelia is said to be doing well.
He said: ‘The staff at Asda were very calm and they didn’t really know what they were doing but they were doing their best, I couldn’t have asked for more. They were amazing.’
Mr Campbell added: ‘It was absolute carnage on the roads, there were cars dumped at the side everywhere and people were wheel spinning, they couldn’t move. She picked the worst day ever to arrive, we’ll never forget it.’
Asda Bodmin store manager Robert Gerred-Hart said: ‘I’m extremely proud of the community-minded spirit that our colleagues displayed as they worked quickly and compassionately to help during last night’s cold snap.’

Welsh rugby fans and pundits trying to get to Paris for the opener of the Six Nations faced being stranded after flight cancellations due to snow.
Disruptions to flights from airports in Cardiff and Bristol left queues of fans facing a race against time to get to France ahead of this evening’s kick-off.
France are due to host Wales in the first game of the tournament at 8pm at the Stade de France.
Ex Wales captain and BBC pundit Sam Warburton was one of the passengers due to fly on the cancelled 9.30am flight from Cardiff Airport to Charles de Gaulle.
He told BBC Wales: ‘A few of the guys went over yesterday from Bristol. I was doing some work last night for the BBC so we knew we would be cutting it fine this morning, but I am sure we will all be fine.
‘I am probably too laid back for my own good so I don’t mind at all. I have got 12 hours to get out there. Even if I need to get the Eurostar or something I am sure I will be there for kick-off so I am not worried at all.’
Four flights from Cardiff to Paris are still expected to depart at 1.05pm this afternoon. The airport is advising passengers to check live flight information on their website and contact airlines directly for information.
Bristol Airport said all flights were cancelled until at least midday due to snow, including flights to Paris.
The airport said on their Twitter page: ‘As a result of continued adverse weather, our teams are working hard to clear the airfield. Due to the volume of snowfall, the airfield will remain closed until 1200. A further update will be given as the situation changes. Please contact your airline for specific flight queries.’
Wales women’s team were caught up in the cancellations. They were due to fly from Bristol on Friday afternoon ahead of their own opening Six Nations game against defending champions France in Montpellier at 8pm on Saturday.
A spokesman confirmed the team had now booked an early flight on the morning of the match from Heathrow Airport.
Rugby fan Leon Brown said he was due to fly out of Bristol at 2pm, but had received a text to say his flight had already been cancelled.
He said he was now looking to sell his two match tickets, adding: ‘We did look at the Eurostar. Should never had sold my 4×4. I would have drove.’
Lisa Marie Brown, from Cardiff, was also due to fly out from Bristol at 2pm with her husband, but said she will now be watching the game on television from home.
She said: ‘Our flight was due at 2pm and was cancelled at 10am. We were hoping to get to Paris to watch Wales v France for the start of the Six Nations, which has ruined the experience with no extra flights scheduled to leave.
‘It would have been really good to put on a new flight at 3pm because snow is clearing here.’
‘Good job I’ve been panic buying!’: Britons poke fun at #snowmaggedon as thousands enjoy day off work or school after blizzards swept UK overnight
Britons are rejoicing at the prospect of a snow day after blizzards swept across the UK overnight blanketing the nation in crisp, white powder.
But as commuters wrap up warm and head to work, some have noticed a suspicious lack of fellow travellers and have taken to social media to share the deserted stations along with the hashtag #Snowmageddon.
Despite the thick snow and the amber warning issued by the Met Office, Britons are seeing the fun side of the day, sharing pictures of their early snowman attempts and picturesque village pub dusted with the February frost.
Some have even taken their #Snowmageddon preparations to extreme lengths, stocking their fridge with dozens of bottles of milk (semi-skimmed), should the worst happen and they need endless cups of tea to sooth their woes.
Snow Wars Return of the Sled-i: Despite the thick snow and the amber warning issued by the Met Office, Britons are still seeing the fun side of the snow day, sharing pictures of their early snowman attempts and picturesque village pub dusted with the February frost – and even the odd sci-fi meme about the need for some more heavy duty gritters to tackle the roads

Not everywhere has been affected, though, leaving some bemoaning the lack of snow of their driveways and roads.
One disgruntled Brit, disappointment at the thin layer of ice on his tarmac even took out a measuring tape to highlight the severe lack of inches.
Meanwhile others shared tweets demanding to know where their snowfall was and why they are missing out on all the fun.

The Met Office has issued an amber warning that carries a ‘potential risk to life’ with more extreme snowfall expected in the Home Counties and West Country until lunchtime, cutting off towns and villages.
The overnight lowest temperature was -15.4C (4.3F) in the Aberdeenshire village of Braemar – making it the coldest night in seven years, since the -15.6C (3.9F) observed on February 11, 2012 at Holbeach in Lincolnshire.
Around 12 hours of snowfall – the heaviest in England this winter – knocked out power for around 1,000 homes in and around Southampton. Flights across the south were cancelled, including from London Heathrow.
Heaven vs hell! Dozens of motorists were stuck for ten hours in freezing cars on A30 overnight… while more than 100 lucky punters bedded-down for lock-in at cosy local pub
More than 100 people sought refuge at a pub high on Bodmin Moor overnight after heavy snowfall hit the A30, with many stranded motorists abandoning their cars.
Some of those reaching the Jamaica Inn in Cornwall had trudged through snow for several miles after 4.7in (12cm) of it brought ‘chaos’ to the cross-country route.
Sammy Wheeler, 25, the pub’s general manager, said groups and families with young children arrived in droves after cars got stuck on a nearby stretch of the A30.

Makeshift dormitories with mattresses on the floors were set up in other parts of the pub
She said: ‘A lot of people have abandoned their cars. Some of them have walked a good three, four or five miles. People were fed up of being in a cold car.’
Ms Wheeler added that many people were running out of fuel. Each of the inn’s 36 rooms was full, with some being shared by complete strangers last night.
Meanwhile makeshift dormitories with mattresses on the floors were set up in other parts of the pub, including 15 beds in the restaurant another five in the lounge.
Paul Drye, 54, of St Austell, Cornwall, was heading home after working in Dorchester, Dorset, yesterday afternoon when he became stuck on the A30 around 3.30pm.
He said: ‘There had been a bit of heavy snow but while everything was moving it was fine, but as soon as there was a few incidents up ahead everything ground to a halt.
‘You never know how long these things are going to last, whether it will be moving in two minutes or four hours as it turned out.’
Mr Drye arrived at the Jamaica Inn around 7.30pm and was met with a real ‘cross-section’ of people including dogs, children and truck drivers.
‘People were still arriving until the early hours of the morning, people who had left their cars and walked, a couple miles some of them,’ he said.
Each of the inn’s 36 rooms was full, with some being shared by complete strangers last night
The Jamaica Inn staff were like a ‘well-oiled machine’, they provided mattresses, blankets and pillows for everybody and stayed up all night stoking fires, Mr Dyre said.
Ms Wheeler said: ‘I have no sheets left and I’m sure my head housekeeper will kill me in the morning when she hears about it.
‘I’ve stolen all duvets and everything from everywhere possible. There’s no beds left but we are now letting people sleep everywhere and I’m providing them with pillows and blankets.’
Spirits were said to be ‘incredibly high’ among the guests, who included around a dozen children and an eight-month-old baby.
The pub’s seven staff, including two chefs, were pulling out the stops to make sure all were comfortable – although they were ‘in for a long one,’ Ms Wheeler said.
‘Credit to my staff – a shout-out goes to all of them,’ she added.
The area is under a yellow weather warning of snow and ice until this afternoon and efforts continued through the night to clear the A30 and get people moving again.
Speaking at 7.30am this morning Mr Dyre said some travellers had already left to walk back to their cars and that from the Inn they could see traffic on the A30 was moving again.
Hundreds of cars were stuck on the A30 last night for up to ten hours while travelling in the wintry weather which caused chaos across the country
As darkness fell last night drivers were still stuck, some behind a jackknifed lorry, with no idea as to how or when they would make it home from work
Highways England confirmed a plough and a gritter had been sent to assist the stranded motorists – some of whom have got out of their cars and started a snowball fight
The pub had only 10 of its 36 rooms booked for last night before the snow fell but by the early hours of yesterday there were between 120 and 150 people crammed in every available space.
Assistant manager Charlotte Barron said: ‘All 36 rooms were full, we set up 15 makeshift beds in the restaurant, five in the lounge as well as blankets and duvets on the floor.
‘It was actually a lovely atmosphere – we brought out all our board games and complete strangers were playing against each other.
‘A lot of people made friends – probably for life – with one room being occupied by five people who didn’t know each other.’
Those taking shelter included about a dozen children, an eight-month-old baby and ‘two dogs and their four humans’.
Ms Barron added: ‘There were still people arriving at 5am – the furthest one person walked was eight miles to get here.’
Her selflessness was shared by seven of her colleagues – manager Ms Wheeler and staff Ashely Brown, June Parker, April Dawe, Tina Wright, David Bailey and Joe Pearson.
She said: ‘There were only two people in the kitchen who cooked all night – they were making people steak and ale pie, fish and chips – the usual pub grub.
Makeshift beds beds laid out last night at Jamaica Inn, made famous by Daphne du Maurier in her classic novel, on Bodmin Moor for motorists who are stuck on the A30 due to snow

‘Then we started the breakfast menu at 3am as we were starting to get a little short of food.
‘The chef has been making anything he can find for the lunch menu. We are praying for a delivery but aren’t holding out much hope of one getting through.’
Like her colleagues, Ms Barron pitched in all night, making beds, allocating blankets, pot washing, and working behind the bar and in the kitchen.
She said most drivers had started to leave by 8am to go back to their vehicles to allow gritters to make their way along the A30.
The Jamaica Inn’s maintenance team was transporting motorists to their cars in the pub’s 4×4 as well as shovelling ice from the nearby road.
Hundreds of cars were stuck on the A30 last night for up to ten hours while travelling in the wintry weather which caused chaos across the country.
A white out yesterday afternoon stopped cars in their tracks at Temple as thick snow settled up to 3ft high and drivers were forced to abandon their cars.
As darkness fell last night drivers were still stuck, some behind a jackknifed lorry, with no idea as to how or when they would make it home from work.
Highways England were urged to help stranded motorists, including those stuck with young children as drivers reported the roads were ‘like an ice rink’ on the A30 which runs between London and Honiton in east Devon.
The Jamaica Inn on the A30 last night has laid out mattresses on the floor for stranded drivers
Highways England confirmed a plough and a gritter had been sent to assist the stranded motorists – some of whom have got out of their cars and started a snowball fight.
But after hours on the roads many became concerned elderly relatives would spend the night there.
Cornwall Council said there was an ‘intensive effort’ to clear the roads while relatives of the stranded urged authorities to act faster, including those with elderly parents on the roads.
Driver Dominic Burton said about 200 vehicles were trapped on the southbound carriage of the A30 near Okehampton in ‘doomsday’ scenes.
People are being warned against travel in the morning on uncleared routes. Some were still on the roads at 11pm, having been there since the mid afternoon.
Desperate drivers urged police to send advice over whether or not they should keep their engines on while a pub named the Jamaica Inn laid out mattresses on the floor for stranded motorists.
Lee Flagg wrote on Twitter: ‘My sister has been sat on the A30 for 5 hours. 2 young children in the car with no food, milk etc. Can anyone actually give an update that means anything??’
Another man added: ‘What advice do you have for people who look likely to be spending the night on the A30.
‘How to keep warm? Should they keep the engine running? How long will that last for? How can they get water? Saying ‘we’re working as hard as we can’ is great, but need a bit more.’
Kind drivers on the A30 with four wheel drive cars began to tow others to get up a hill, around 8pm yesterday evening. Drivers described the response as a ‘shambles’.
Dominic Burton, 26, was trapped with more than 20 other cars on the A30 at Okehampton
One driver said on Twitter: ‘Ground to a halt at 2.30pm and it’s now 8.20pm and have moved two miles. No snowploughs, no gritters, no police support, it’s a shambles.’
The head of roads policing in Devon and Dorset, Chief Inspector Adrian Leisk, said: ‘The snow is heading eastwards and will cause significant disruption tonight. Please be prepared and avoid all but absolutely essential travel.’
He warned people to stay with their vehicles and to check before making a journey. Concerned car owners said they had only moved a few miles in hours.
Dominic Burton, 26, was been stuck on the A30 from 4.30pm until 11pm after a lorry jackknifed at the top of a hill on the road at Okehampton.
Mr Burton from Barnstaple left work early at 4.30pm in a bid to try and get home before the worst of the snow fell.
But hours later after the lorry got stuck the snow has built up around cars, trapping them. Rescue workers were bringing in snow chains to move the lorry last night.
There were hazardous driving conditions reported across Cornwall with multiple accidents.
Police said people were abandoning their cars on the A30 at Highgate Hill and walking through the snow.
Cars were being abandoned by drivers who could not continue their journey onwards
Devon and Cornwall Police urged people to stay in their cars to keep warm.
At around 8.15pm yesterday, the force tweeted: ‘We have further reports of vehicles stuck on the A39 in Cornwall due to snow.
‘Please stay with your vehicle and keep as warm as possible. Gritter trucks are working their way inwards from Winnards Perch and Wadebridge to get to stranded drivers.’
Mr Burton told MailOnline: ‘I have travelled around nine miles since I left work but we are stuck now. It’s really not a nice place to be right now.
‘The lorry has jackknifed at the top of the hill and there’s a recovery truck there – but the snow has been building up around us while we have been sat here. I’ve tried to move and I can’t.
‘There’s about 25 of us – pretty much everyone is just trying to get home from work. I’ve got another hour and a half to drive – but that’s in normal conditions.’
Mr Burton, who started a new job yesterday, has seen gritters travelling southbound but nothing on the northbound carriageway.
One person wrote on Twitter: ‘Have moved only 100 yards in two hours! It’s now 5.38pm and no end in sight of this situation. Oh, and it’s still snowing!’
Cars stranded on the A30 with dozens being stuck behind a jackknifed lorry at Okehampton
Some were stuck for hours in snow on Bodmin Moor.
Paul Newman said when he reached the A30 at Carland Cross heading eastbound the snow started to fall ‘very, very heavily’ and the traffic started to move slowly until it came to a standstill near Blissland.
‘We believe the stoppage is somewhere near Kennards Cross. There is a lorry across the road. Now that everybody has stopped it is going to be difficult for lorries to get going again,’ he said.
‘At the moment we’ve no idea what’s going on really… the chap in the car in front of us was just throwing snowballs to his dog!’
A couple stuck in their car on the dual carriageway after a sudden dump of snow fear they face a cold night in their vehicle.
Jak Roome was travelling to Wadebridge, Cornwall, to celebrate his 29th birthday with his partner, Jack Slymm, 27, when the roads ahead ground to a halt.
Mr Slymm said that 3ft of snow fell quickly and the road beneath froze, making it impossible to tackle the hill in front.
He said that many cars had attempted to brave the conditions but kept sliding back, and official advice online urged drivers on the road to stay in their cars.
Cars and lorries had come to a complete standstill along the A30 yesterday evening
Highways England teams were mobilised while others reported being stuck at Bodmin Moor
Mr Slymm, a hair stylist from Bristol, said: ‘We’re currently about five miles north of Camelford and about 10 miles south of Bude on A39.
‘We haven’t moved for over three hours, the snow just came down really hard and really quick and the ground froze underneath it.
‘The snow at the side of the road is about 3ft deep and anyone trying to get anywhere is just sliding. One gritter just came past and it didn’t make the slightest bit of difference’
Mr Slymm said that he had recently taken his car to the garage, and luckily was completing the drive in a brand new grey Mini Cooper.
He continued: ‘We’re going to be here all night I think, luckily we’ve got 3/4 tank but the people next to us only have half a tank left.
‘Everyone is helping each other and asking if each other are ok, if someone runs out of fuel we’ll take them in.’
To make matters worse, Mr Roome and Mr Slymm have recently bought a puppy and are travelling with the young animal – and have to keep braving the conditions to get it water.
‘We’ve got a 13-week old puppy with us and we’re worried about her’, Mr Roome said. ‘We didn’t have any water in the car so we had to melt some snow.

‘Luckily we had some food with us, but we can’t leave her outside for too long as it’s too cold.
‘No one has told us anything, but the traffic report says to stay with your car and wait for the weather to clear.
‘We’re trying to get to Wadebridge, we’ve rented a house for all of us. It’s my 29th birthday today, I’ll look back and laugh at it one day.’
Elsewhere, Londoners have have been warned to be home by 9pm this evening as snow is set to hit the capital, after blizzards blasted the South West today causing travel chaos on roads and rail.
Workers and schoolchildren were told to leave early today as Britain endured up to three inches of snow in only 120 minutes, following the country’s coldest night in seven years.
And the Met Office has issued an amber warning for snow that carries a potential risk to life while Transport for London and Network Rail are telling passengers to get home by 9pm.
County officials in Devon had urged people to get home by 3pm, shortly after the start of an amber warning for snow in parts of Wales and South West England, bringing up to 2.8in (7cm) of snow in just two to three hours.
Meanwhile, about 400 students were stranded at Callywith College in Bodmin.
Principal Mark Wardle said buses to transport students had not been able to get to the sixth-form college, and catering staff were providing sausages, chips and beans to those waiting for assistance.
Newborn baby girl found abandoned in a Tesco bag in freezing London park is named Roman after road where she was discovered – as police urgently try to find her missing mother
A newborn baby girl was found abandoned in an east London park last night as temperatures plunged to freezing and blizzards hit the capital.
Police this morning released a picture of the infant in a bid to trace her mother, who officers said they were ‘increasingly concerned’ for.
Nurses are calling the youngster ‘Roman’, because she was found on Roman Road in Newham.
She was reportedly found in a Tesco bag, wrapped in a towel, shortly after 10pm and was quickly rushed to a nearby hospital.

The force said it was called to reports of an abandoned baby at a park area close to Roman Road and Saxon Road at around 10.15pm
The Met said officers are growing ‘increasingly concerned’ for the mother’s welfare and appealed for her to contact police, her local hospital or GP surgery. Pictured: the location where the newborn was found
The Met said officers are growing ‘increasingly concerned’ for the mother’s welfare and appealed for her to contact police, her local hospital or GP surgery.
In a direct appeal to the child’s mother, Inspector Shane Clarke of North East Command Unit, said: ‘We are growing increasingly concerned for your welfare and I urge you to make contact either with police, your local hospital or GP surgery. It is really important that we know that you are safe.
‘I would also urge anyone who has information that could help us to reunite this baby with her mother to come forward.’
Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the mother is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference CAD7825/31JAN or Tweet @MetCC.
Heavy snowfall hit much of southern England and and Wales on Thursday night, leaving people trapped in cars as temperatures plummeted to just 1C (34F) in east London at the time the baby way found.
The snowfall already exceeds the maximum 10cm of snowfall that was predicted when the Mt Office issued a severe weather warning for Thursday.
The snow, which has been travelling eastwards, has reached as far as Wiltshire, Hampshire, Sussex and Kent, with a few flakes in central London on Thursday and into the early hours of Friday morning.
The Met Office tweeted: ‘Snow, initially moving north and east across parts of southern and southwestern England, the Midlands and Wales, will stall and tend to fragment.
‘Wintry showers will continue in northern and eastern areas. Ice is likely in many parts overnight.’
There are ‘treacherous driving conditions in places’, the forecaster added.
Commuters in many parts of the country were warned to leave work early on Thursday to ensure they got home.

‘What mountain do these teachers live up?’: Furious parents slam ‘pathetic’ decision to cancel classes as 2,000 UK schools shut due to snow
Angry parents across the country have reacted furiously to many schools’ decision to remain closed for the day following overnight snowfall.
While thousands of children were thrilled to have a snow day off, the 2.000 closures nationwide were not greeted with joy by some parents forced to make last minute arrangements.
Hundreds of schools across the UK closed after snow fell overnight on Thursday, some were shut despite the white stuff barely touching them.
One angry Twitter user, Codders, posted: ‘Pathetic the kids school is closed today why? No snow if we take kids out we get fined are the schools gonna get fined and pay us parents? I doubt it proves fines are just money making scam for the schools’
Wales, Bristol, Greater London, Cornwall, Devon, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, Hampshire, Berkshire, and West Sussex were just some of the areas to announce closures.
However, one Twitter user, Codders, posted: ‘Pathetic the kids school is closed today why? No snow if we take kids out we get fined are the schools gonna get fined and pay us parents? I doubt it proves fines are just money making scam for the schools.’
With his profile location set to Llanelli, West Wales, the message was accompanied by a photograph showing the lightest dusting of snow.
Donna Marie, also in Wales, posted: ‘@GMB our school closed yesterday at 12.30 due to the forecast, at that time no snow had fallen and didn’t fall until 4.30pm!! So they could have stayed £itsajoke £healthandsafetygonemad’.

Another user, Emily, tweeted that her school was closed despite there being no snow.
Tracy Cameron responded to a tweet from Monmouthshire County Council saying all community hubs and libraries were still open with: ‘Why no schools open then? The knock on effect for parents is terrible. What mountain do all these teachers live up?’
In most cases, parents, carers and pupils were able to check on the status of their school through social media, or the local council website.

The Department for Education website also allowed people to enter their postcodes to find out what institutions in their area had shut due to the bad weather.

Meanwhile parents in Gloucestershire have been left in the dark after a council website revealing which schools were closed crashed.
Frustrated parents were met with the downed Gloucestershire City Council website this morning as they tried to find out if they needed to battle the cold weather to get their kids to school.
The freezing temperatures has seen multiple weather warnings issued by the Met Office for today and over the weekend, including cautions for snow and ice.
Thousands of schools have since closed, meaning an estimated 800,000 children will stay home today.
But the day wasn’t made any easier when the Gloucestershire City Council website crashed.
Just one of the angry parents took to social media to vent their frustrations, writing: ‘The school closure link is not working – been trying all morning! Please sort it out GCC, the old system always worked!’
