DRIVERS are urged to take care on the roads today due to snow and ice.

The wintry weather conditions have resulted in delays and cancellations to bus services across Oldham.

First Manchester warned that cars were stuck on ice which was causing traffic problems in Garforth Street and Victoria Street, in Chadderton.

Commuters are experiencing delays on bus services 24, 181 and 182 due to the partially-blocked roads.

Bus routes 83, 149, 184, 425, 350 and X84 are also affected this morning and passengers are advised to check online for any updates.

First Manchester said via Twitter: "Due to weather conditions: 83 omitting Sholver, 149 omitting Coppice, 84 staying on Standedge Road, omitting Diggle, 425 omitting Alt estate, 350 omitting Carrcote, Delph and Hey Farm, and X84 omitting Carrcote."

A yellow weather warning is in place across Greater Manchester, including Oldham, Saddleworth and surrounding areas.

The Met Office said: "Heavy hail and snow showers are expected during Monday morning and will lead to ice and snow accumulating on many surfaces.

"Longer journey times by road, bus and train services are likely while some vehicles could become stranded.

"Ice is likely to form on untreated pavements, cycle paths and roads leading to some injuries from slips and falls.

"Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected."
