VIDEO/PICTURES: Heavy snow falls in Colchester causes traffic chaos

Up to 3 inches of snow have fallen across parts of Colchester this morning with roads made impassable in many places.

We took a short journey in Stanway this morning and filmed it LIVE on our Facebook channel, Stanway Village.

Essex Police have advised motorist to avoid going out on the roads. Essex County Council confirm the recycling centre in Shrub End will remain closed today.

Kelvin Baker, local photographer has been out and about in Colchester and sent us these wonderful photographs to share.
