More snow causes chaos on Welwyn Hatfield’s roads
FRESH snowfall overnight has caused misery on the roads for commuters trying to get to work this morning (Wednesday).
With the snow falling on already frozen slush, main roads throughout Welwyn Hatfield were gridlocked as motorists struggled in the conditions.
A number of crashes have been reported to police, a spokeswoman told the Welwyn Hatfield Times.
Five cars were involved in a pile-up in Hill Rise, Cuffley, although there were no reports of any injuries.
A Rover hit a tree in Cattlegate Road, Northaw, near the junction with Coopers Lane Road, at 8.30am.

Hertfordshire Highways continues to run its restricted network salting programme, meaning less roads are currently being gritted in a bid to conserve salt stocks.
County councillor Stuart Pile said: “We will continue to keep salting A and B roads, plus roads that provide access to essential emergency services like hospitals and key fire stations.”
The latest salting run started at 9am.
