South Yorkshire firefighters have urged motorists to only travel today if necessary - to reduce the risk of collisions.

Many roads across the county are still covered in snow, with more forecast today.

Gritters are working across the county, but many side streets are still white.

A South Yorkshire Fire Service spokesman said: "Our fire engines are ready and waiting if you need us in, but please try to keep us available for those most in need by taking extra care on the roads and only making your journey if necessary."
