It's been another night of snow and wintery conditions across our area.
Heavy snow overnight is once again causing problems on the roads and public transport this morning.
Snow began to fall in our area late last night and has continued overnight, following an amber warning of snow from the Met Office earlier in the week.
Numerous routes in our area have been affected, including Apple Orchard Bank on the A174, Skelton Ellers, Saltburn Bank, Ormesby Bank and routes onto the moors, including the A171 at Birkbrow have all been affected by significant volumes of snow, with many minor routes in our area are affected by snow and ice.
The severe weather conditions, which are being nicknamed 'The Beast from the East', are expected to affect our area for most of this week.

Police have released CCTV images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with an attempted robbery at the RSK Convenience Store on Staithes Road in Dormanstown earlier this month.
The incident occurred at 5am on Sunday 4th February when a man entered the store and threatened the shopkeeper with an object and attempted to steal money from the till.
The man is described as being a white male, around 5 ft 8” – 5 ft 10” tall and he was wearing a black balaclava, a dark coat, grey tracksuit bottoms and he was carrying a rucksack.
Following the incident, the man fled the shop empty handed and made off on a mountain bike.
The shopkeeper was uninjured.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident or anyone with information is asked to contact DC Andrew Paice on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Officers from Cleveland Police are asking parents if they know where there children are on an evening.
Over the past few months there has been several incidents of criminal damage to the Valley Gardens in Saltburn, including littering, damage to flag stones, snapped trees, and damage to the roof of the shelter.
This is causing distress to a lot of people, in particular the volunteers from Friends of Saltburn Valley Gardens who have spent a lot of time within these gardens so that members of the public can enjoy them.
Police will be increasing their visibility patrols within the Valley Gardens and will be using CCTV to help officers and staff identify the suspects.
Anyone with any information about the current damage is asked to contact 101.
