AFTER Storm Emma blew over, drivers have been warned of difficult conditions which persist across Powys with a yellow weather warning of ice that runs until 11am on Sunday.

It follows heavy snow which left thousands of homes without power in North Wales, public transport at a standstill and all of Powys's schools shut on Friday.

The sporting calendar on Saturday has been hit with rugby and football matches cancelled.

Some buses were running again on Saturday and Powys County Council's road clearing teams have obviously been hard at work clearing major routes through the county.

Several major routes through Wales remain closed due to the extreme weather, including:

A44 Ponterwyd to Llangurig, closed due to snow

A483 Newtown to Crossgates poor driving conditions

A458 Welshpool to Mallwyd closed due to adverse weather

A470 Caersws to Pontdogloch, raod closed due to heavy snow.

The pictures above were sent in by reader Peter Philips who says: "The van was stranded at the top of Frogs Gutter...since Weds, I think ! (hazard lights no longer working.) It must have been very frightening for the driver. While the road is blocked, the snow renders it impassable anyway except for tractors(and now land rovers.)

"We in F Gutter wonder whether we should not let contents go to waste... rather like Whiskey Galore.

Drifts deep, head height."
