8.17am Swindon: Latest pics 

Main routes 'driveable' but minor roads severely affected
 
It's been another difficult morning on the roads for Swindon drivers, with the majority of main routes described as 'driveable' but many minor roads anything but.
 
"I've just driven from Covingham to Highworth," one driver told us just after 8:00am, "and it was OK when I hit the A361 but the sideroads are a nightmare. Really, really icey."
 
Areas to avoid
 
Thamesdown Drive in North Swindon - 'bumper-to-bumper' near Asda Walmart at 8:30am.
 
Thames Avenue in Haydon Wick - closed
 
The A4361 Salthrop hill - closed
