Here is the latest from Northumbria Police on road closures throughout the region.
Most major routes are now open, but the following roads remain closed due to drifting snow and unsafe driving conditions.
-Fellside Road, Whickham is closed from East Byemoor Guest House to the Pack Horse. The risk of snow banks collapsing and drifting snow means this road is unsafe for driving and a risk to public safety. We will update tomorrow once an assessment has been made.
-Kibblesworth Bank from Ouslaw Lane including Birkland Lane but aiming to have it reopened later today.
-Haggs Lane in Lamesley from Birkhead Lane up to Pennyfine Road is expected to open imminently today.
-Horsegate Bank, from Lead Road, Chopwell is open and clear.
