The conditions faced by Kirklees Council’s gritting crews have been revealed in dramatic footage.

A dash-cam video posted by one of the gritting teams called out on Thursday night shows the bad weather faced by the drivers.

The snow is blowing almost horizontally as the driver heads up Wessenden Head Road and along the A635 Greenfield Road - which had to be closed despite their efforts.

The crews were out on Thursday from 6pm and tackled all the priority routes.

But they were battling against the heaviest snow of the winter and were sent out again on Friday morning to again grit the roads.

A spokesman said: “Snow can still settle on roads even when they have been gritted.

“All our gritters are currently out ploughing and gritting.”
