Snow chaos on roads as flurries hit Essex, Kent and North East England.

SNOW has caused chaos on roads Friday morning as freezing flakes fell across the North and snow reached the South of England overnight.

Brits in Essex, Kent, and Cornwall woke up to blankets of snow outside their windows - but the flurries and icy conditions have caused crashes and delays for motorists.

The winter weather has made its way to the South of England - with more snowfall expected as the day goes on.

And the Met Office has issued FOUR weather warnings for today and tomorrow with icy patches and torrential rain set to continue.

Motorists are facing difficult driving conditions in parts of the country, as the snow is causing travel disruption, while there were also reports of "thundersnow" in some areas.

Essex Roads Policing Unit have also issued a warning over "terrible" roads - after receiving multiple calls this morning.

The force tweeted: "The driving conditions in some parts of Essex are terrible! We are getting multiple calls to RTC's... please #SlowDown #LightsOn #MakeSpace."

Rail passengers are also affected, with ScotRail warning of "significant disruption to services on multiple routes" due to heavy snow.

Roads were treacherous on Dartmoor and Exmoor this morning, as vehicles skidded and swerved.

A police spokesman said: "Crazy people are still tearing along like there's no tomorrow...which there might not be for them if they crash and kill themselves.

"The trouble is if they cause an accident, it could seriously injure or kill innocent people too. Drivers should slow down and take heed of the conditions."
