Snow joke for some as Whitby escapes worst weather

While Whitby town seems to have escaped a downpour of the white stuff there was plenty of snow to be had on the hills and in some of the area’s villages.

There were problems on the A169 Whitby to Pickering road throughout the week.

On Sunday night a car came off the road at the Hole of Horcum and at other times vehicles became stuck trying to negotiate the roads particularly at Saltergate and around the Goathland turn offs.

In the opposite direction roads heading towards Guisborough were barely passable in places.
