Snow causing problems on M6 in Cumbria

Snow is making driving on the M6 motorway difficult this morning.

Conditions are reported to be hazardous at junction 39 Shap. Matrix signs between junction 37 at Kendal and junction 40 at Penrith have been set to 50mph due to high winds.

Police say there have been a number of minor accidents. A number of motorists were reported to have skidded on the slippery surface.

Drivers have been advised to drive to the conditions, not the speed limit. This includes allowing extra time and distance for braking and using the highest possible gear to avoid wheel spinning on ice or snow.

One lane has been closed southbound between junction 40 Penrith and junction 39 because of an accident.
