PROBLEMS on local roads are being reported, caused by the heavy snowfall.

quite a few years ago when we had really bad snow i was coming home on bus and it was sliding all over the road the driver gave it up as a bad job at the cutting edge so i got off bus and started walking to birdwell just further down worsboro bridge there were some more buses stranded they had been there ages and could not get up the hill i had some pork pies in my bag and handed them out to the drivers at least they would not starve !
