West Yorkshire Police have released information on what to do if you crash in the snow.

Call handlers said they are getting 'many calls of this nature to 999' this morning.

The contact management centre tweeted: "If you have a road traffic collision with no obstruction in the road and no injury you do not need to ring us on 999.

"You need to exchange details with the other driver.

"We are getting many calls of this nature this morning due to the weather.
