A FRESH band of wintry weather brought misery for commuters this morning.
Drivers faced ungritted roads after about two inches of snow fell overnight.
The A10 between Royston and Buntingford was at a standstill for several hours, and the situation was compounded by a three-vehicle collision near Reed.
Drivers are being asked to stay off the roads where possible.
Gary Sanderson, communications manager at the East of England Ambulance Service, said: "Clearly people are heeding the advice that the police, ourselves and motoring organisations are giving out to take extra care and only to make journeys that are absolutely necessary.
"While the snow and icy conditions continue to present a hazard, particularly on smaller roads and side streets which don't always benefit from gritting or salting, motorists should remain particularly careful."
