UPDATED 10.10am: Snow and crash cause Leicestershire traffic chaos
Snow and a car crash conspired to jam up city and county roads this morning.
At about 8am a car travelling out of the underpass at St Nicholas Circle ended up on its side in a crash involving one other car.
The vehicle blocked one lane of the inner ring road, causing serious tailbacks on the northbound side.
Elsewhere, the snowfall meant many more people using main routes instead of backroads, leading to slow traffic into the city from many directions.

An area traffic control spokeswoman said: “There was one lane blocked near to the Southgates underpass following a collision at 8am and there was also heavy traffic being caused due to the snow.”
The car on its side was removed at 9.30am and the road fully re-opened.
The fire service said there had been several other minor road crashes overnight in the snow.
