Nobody was seriously injured but police are warning drivers to take care on the parkway, one lane of which is clear.

In Lincolnshire there has been significant snowfall and police are asking people not to travel uness absolutely necessary.

There are concerns that drifting snow will mean that some areas will soon become impassable, while freezing temperatures are making for hazardous driving conditions in some parts. We have had a number of incidents reported to us involving road conditions over the last few hours.

Full details of the areas affected and the roads closed can be found on the Force Control Room Twitter account @FCR_Lincs, but at present the parts of Lincolnshire most badly affected include the A17 Leadenham bypass where two HGVs became stuck, Folkingham to Osbournby on the A15, the A158 at Edlington, and areas of central Lincoln including Canwick Road and Lindum Hill, as well as some roads in Branston.
