SNOW meant rush hour traffic came to a standstill in many parts of Huntingdonshire, especially between St Ives and Huntingdon, The Stukeleys and Godmanchester.
Heavy and settling snow also caused cars to skid on the road and a car ran into a bus in Catworth today (Monday, February 22). No one was hurt in the incident.
Despite bumps, shunts and damage to vehicles, injuries were minimal according to Cambridgeshire police who by 9am, the start of the working day, said there had been no more accidents reported to them than normal.
As children were set to return to school after half-term, there were no reports of school closures in the county despite the settling snow and temperatures below freezing.
