This was the scene in Cookridge on Friday morning as heavy snow fell

Sadly, the snow turned to sleet and the sleet turned to rain and the snow didn't end up settling in most parts of Leeds.

That was in stark contrast to the scene in parts of North Yorkshire on Thursday morning, which woke up to blizzard blasts which covered several country roads.

"Increased likelihood of traffic collisions due to tricky driving conditions."

In Edale, the Mountain Rescue Team has been warning people about driving or walking in the snowy conditions.

"Shovel, sleeping bag/blanket, torch and spare batteries, phone charger, appropriate footwear in case you have to walk, extra clothing and waterproofs, flask with warm drink and some food.

"Check the weather reports. It's a good time to check the condition of your vehicle battery too."
