SNOW PATROL: Emergency services work to keep the traffic moving

MANY parts of Spain have woken this morning blanketed in snow.

There are currently warnings for snow across 17 provinces and the Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT) are warning the situation on the roads is ‘complicated.’

Despite the best efforts of highways workers and the emergency services many roads are impassable. They warn the situation could get worse.

Personnel from the UME (Military Emergency Unit) are working to clear the AP7 between Segovia and Madrid.

Ávila, Salamanca, Segovia and Soria are the regions most affected – but there are also road closures across the country and in the southern Andalucia, including the white village of Grazalema in Cadiz and roads in Granada and Malaga provinces too.

In some areas the DGT has said the use of snow chains or winter tyres is obligatory.
