FREEZING temperatures have brought a flurry of snowfall to the county.

Motorists reported snow on the higher part of the Pennines and across the A66 at Stainmore this morning.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for snow and ice and is in place between 9pm and 11am tomorrow.

A spokesman for The Met Office said: "Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times

"Icy surfaces may make accidents and falls more likely.

"A spell of rain and hill snow is likely to affect many areas, with skies clearing at times to allow icy surfaces, although these won't affect all places.

"The snow is most likely above 200 metres elevation and probably focused in the north Pennines and into parts of Scotland."
