Giant snowballs in Welwyn Garden City road

TWO giant snowballs were blocking a road in the early hours of this morning (Friday).

Police received three calls from the public asking for help, as the massive boulders could not be moved.

At around 3am police referred the incident to Hertfordshire Highways, who removed them from Black Fan Road, in WGC.

Police also had reports of cars in difficulty throughout the morning.

Homerswood Lane, Cole Green Lane and Knightsfield in WGC, and Mardley Hill in Welwyn had reports of cars being abandoned.
