Much of the UK remains in the grip of freezing conditions as snow and ice continue to severely hamper travel. Forecasters say the snow over southern England has eased but there will be isolated show showers elsewhere. Widespread ice will become the major problem, with temperatures staying well below zero across the UK.

All forms of transport has been hit by the severe weather. Thousands of schools closed acoss the county and people have been stock piling.

On New Year’s Day The Langdole and Amberside Mountain Rescue crew were called out to a hummer limousine which had been caught in the snow with 12 passengers trapped inside while travelling though the Lake district. The passengers were resuced within an hour an a half.

The limo got stuck on the summit of Kirkstone Pass which is the Lake District’s highest pass that is open to motor vehicles. It has been reported that the group onboard the huge limo had been travelling to watch a Barrow AFC match but became stuck on the road at approximately 10pm on New Year’s Day.

All limo hire passengers and the driver were evacuated from the area safely and no injuries were reported.
