Snow has started falling again in areas across the region, especially in North and East Devon.

Hugh Griffith, Highway Operations Control Centre Manager for Devon County Council, said gritters had been deployed to assess the roads.

He said: “In the North and East of Devon where snow is falling but not necessarily settling a gritter is out trouble shooting as required.

“Some very cold road surfaces out there, so take care, there is likely to be ice even on the network that we treat.”

There are currently no snow weather warnings in place for the region, although a heavy rain weather warning has been issued from 3pm.

The following roads are currently affected by snow and ice:

- The B3223 is closed at Scobhill Road

- The B3223 is blocked between Simonsbath and Lynton due to a vehicle stuck in snow. There are also difficult driving conditions in the area due to snowfall

- Snow is affecting the A39 in Countisbury, although a gritter is working in the area in an attempt to keep the road open and clear

- There is snow on the A361 at Two Gates, although it is not settling at the moment

- There is ice on the B3227 near to Atherington

- There is also ice on the A377 at Lapford

Earlier this morning a driver had a lucky escape after a car skidded on black ice and veered off the A377 and into a hedge near Lapford.
