Although heading the wrong way from you, we travelled to Sheffield and back yesterday and the motorways were pretty clear (although very foggy)

Hope your parents have a safe trip :)

The roads round me are fine, i know I'm a bit away but nearer than some. On news last night it said Crosby was -17 at teatime! What?

I'm going to Birkenhead on Boxing Day, so i will be watching out for the road news too.

Safe journeys to all :)

I don't know if it's of any help but we've done Newcastle - Birmingham - Newcastle today and the motorways were absolutely fine, when we had the bad snow a couple of weeks ago the motorways were ok, just had to take it a bit slower so I'm guessing the same goes for down your way. I know motorways are prioritised for getting them gritted and cleared so hopefully it'll be ok
