Snow fall caused some disruption across Pembrokeshire this morning with several schools closing and routes becoming hazardous and dangerous.

A spokesperson for Pembrokeshire County Council stated: “Primary routes and secondary routes have been gritted and are being patrolled again this morning but conditions remain very icy and slippery.

“Untreated routes will be hazardous and dangerous. Please take caution and consider if journey is essential. Coastal roads are reported as dangerous.”

Several bus services were unable to operate, although some routes were attempting to run.

There was a road closure at Jackson Way and Goodwick Hill, Goodwick, with drivers reminded to follow diversion routes which will be gritted.

The A478 was gritted but the road remained icy, especially around Rhoshill, with reports of cars being stuck also between Cardigan and Crymych at Bridell.

On the B4318 a lorry became stuck on a hill due to ice/snow between Tavernspite and Red Roses.

There was a high number of school closures, with some only partially closed, including Ysgol Hafan y Môr in Tenby.

There was also considerable disruption to school transport due to the snow.

A spokesperson for the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority stated: “We’re aware of snow falling across many areas of the National Park overnight and this morning.

“We’d advise everyone to be cautious if you’re heading out – and be mindful that some local roads are already in a treacherous condition.

“For those planning to enjoy the snow, please remember that much of the land in the National Park, including North Pembrokeshire, is privately owned.

“Take care, and please respect the land, farmers and their livestock. Take all litter home with you and park wisely, without blocking gates or roads that may be used by local residents, landowners and emergency services.”
