Crewe residents should brace themselves for continuing heavy snow showers over the weekend, with forecasts predicting up to 5cm settling over the town in the coming days.

We’re asking readers to tweet and email their Crewe winter wonderland snow pictures to the paper.

Laura Caldwell, a forecaster for MeteoGroup, said 10-15cm might fall over parts of the north west with as much as 10in (25cm) set to cover the hills.

Travel disruption is expected and motorists have been warned to prepare their cars if travel is essential.

The North West Ambulance Service is also asking Winsford residents to take care.

Derek Cartwright, acting director of operations at NWAS, said: “Severe weather has a huge impact on the service as we, like all other road users, have to negotiate the hazardous driving conditions.

"There is always an increase in the number of road traffic collisions and falls and therefore I ask that the public only take necessary journeys.

"If you do need to travel, make sure you are prepared for extended journey times.”
