Amber weather warning for Newbury
Heavy snow affecting southwest England and parts of Wales is extending further east across parts of southern and central England - including Newbury.
The Met Office say an amber warning for our part of world will include snow that will be accompanied by very strong easterly winds leading to blizzards and considerable drifting.
Long delays and cancellations of public transport seem very likely. Some roads may become blocked by deep snow, stranding vehicles and passengers. Long interruptions to power supplies and other utilities are likely to occur, along with possible damage to trees and other structures due to heavy snow or ice.
