Heavy snow causes disruption across parts of Cornwall

Heavy snow falling overnight has caused severe disruption in some parts of Cornwall.
The two main trunk roads between Cornwall and Devon - the A38 and the A30 - have been described as "atrocious" and "dangerous".
Newquay Airport is open, but travellers have been advised there could be some disruption to flights.
Snow has also affected Callington, Bude and Penwithick, with police advising drivers not to start their journeys.
Outbreaks of snow have turned to sleet or rain in some areas, increasing the risk of ice on freezing roads, the Met Office said.
