Snow Causes Travel Chaos In Kent
Snow and ice caused hours of delays for drivers in Kent on Thursday evening.
Gritting teams were not able to properly treat main and secondary routes around the county due to the heavy rain during the afternoon, which washed away some of the grit which had been laid.
That meant some difficult driving conditions, leading to crashes, breakdowns and long queues on parts of the M20, M2, A2 and Detling Hill and Blue Bell Hill.
Sandra Woodfall was making a journey from Dartford to Detling after work at My Farmers Limited - It's only around 25 miles but it took more than 3 hours.
It was also a busy night for the emergency services and volunteers from South East 4x4 Response who helped stranded motorists and tried to get vehicles moving safely.
James Chalky is one of the team and told Heart they had a very busy evening.
Today the Met office has issued a Yellow Weather Warning for Ice across the county. While councils have closed floodgates along the north Kent coast as a precaution as strong winds combine with hide tides.
