A SECOND wave of snow has struck Crow Country, causing fresh disruption to the areas roads today (Thursday).

There were long delays on the A505 this morning between Thriplow and Royston after a lorry jack-knifed.

Meanwhile, train services between Royston and London Kings Cross are severely disrupted after a train hit overhead power lines yesterday.
