On Monday morning, Gloucestershire Police warned members of the public to take care.
“Heavy snow is starting to fall in the rural parts of the county. This will cause delays on the roads,” the force tweeted.
“Only go out if it is essential to do so. Make sure you plan your route and have everything you may need in an emergency including a fully-charged mobile phone.
“We are receiving a number of reports of snow around the county causing disruption, particularly in the Forest of Dean and the A417 around Birdlip.
“Please stay safe and avoid all unnecessary travel.”
Similar warnings were issued by West Mercia Police and Staffordshire Police.
Much of the West Midlands was blanketed by overnight snowfall, with a fire crew in Cradley Heath seen pushing a stranded paramedic’s car up a snowy hill this morning, as she tries to make it into work for her shift.
