SNOWFALLS have brought travel disruption to the north Wales region over Saturday night and into Sunday morning.

North Wales Police police reported early on Sunday morning, at around 5am, that the A55 at Pentre Halkyn, Flintshire was badly affected.

Two lanes westbound were impassable due to the snow and a snow plough had to be deployed.

Motorists were asked to seek alternative routes to avoid the area, although motorists have since taken to Twitter to say the conditions have eased slightly.

A Met Office severe "yellow" weather warning for snow, which was put in place at 3am, remains until 11am.

The warning covers parts of north Wales and into a central swathe of mid and northern England.

Another yellow weather warning for strong winds is affecting the south of Wales where hundreds of homes reported losing power.

The Met Office says travel disruption can be expected with roads and railways likely to be affected.

Longer journey times by road, bus and train services are anticipated.
