Snow problems.

Snow storms continued to cause travel chaos today with blizzards forcing motorists in East Cleveland to abandon their vehicles. Roads in Saltburn were brought to a standstill.
George Tough, 27, who has lived in Saltburn for 20 years, said he has never known weather like it. The barman, who works in the Marine Hotel said, "It has been snowing heavily all day. Several roads have been closed because there is just so much snow and people are getting stuck. The pub is far busier than it usually is, with people coming in to shelter from the bitter cold."
Janet Coser, 49, owner of the Victoria Public House, said, "It is really, really bad. The snow is about four to five inches deep and it looks as though there is a lot more on the way. People have been abandoning their cars and taking shelter inside the pub. I can’t say I have ever known weather as bad as this – it is just horrific."
Saltburn Bank was closed on several occasions throughout the day with Police stopping cars accessing the bank, only allowing 4x4s through.
