DRIVERS in parts of the UK have been urged to stay off the roads today as wild weather has led to ‘treacherous’ conditions.
Those planning to take to the roads in Devon and Cornwall have been urged not to after a yellow weather warning was put in place for most of southern England and a fallen tree blocked traffic on the busy A30.
Last night wild winds and torrential rain resulted in a series of crashes in the south west, giving police a busy night.
Devon and Cornwall Police South Devon Specials tweeted “A busy, wet and windy evening. Lots of logs coming in for road traffic collisions and broken down vehicles due to standing water, potholes and unfortunately drivers not adjusting their driving to the conditions. #StaySafe #TakeCare”.
Northern parts of Scotland were slapped with a Met Office yellow weather warning yesterday for snow and ice, while at the other extreme of the country a rain warning covers most of southern England and Wales.
