HUDDERSFIELD'S army of road gritters is heading out in force as forecasters predict more wintry weather.
Blizzards hit northern Scotland overnight while heavy snow fell in parts of northern and eastern England. A young boy is pictured playing with his kite on the snow-covered Sutton Bank above Thirsk.
But some forecasters played down reports that blizzards will hit Huddersfield.
Paul Knightley, of the PA Weather Centre, said: "Most of the snow will stay around coas- tal areas with northern Scotland bearing the brunt of it.
"People living in central and southern regions may not see that much snow."
Overnight snowfalls around Scarborough and Whitby brought treacherous conditions to some routes. The A64 Scarborough to York road and the A171 coastal road between Scarborough and Whitby was the worst-hit.
The Highways Agency urged driv- ers to slow down as severe frosts increased the risk of ice on untreated minor roads.
