One person had to be cut free from a car after a crash in freezing conditions in Clevedon last night (Tuesday).

Emergency services were called to B3133 Kenn Road following a two-car accident at about 7.15pm.

One passenger managed to free themselves from the wreckage, but another had to be cut free by Avon Fire and Rescue Service personnel.

Paramedics then took the pair to hospital for further treatment. No updates about their condition has been released at this time.

Police had to close the road for several hours while the debris was clear.

Davis Lane, from Kenn Road, remained closed early this morning due to the treacherous conditions.

It is not clear whether the snow contributed to the accident, but warnings have been issued by travel agencies to make drivers aware of the tricky conditions.

However, more snow is expected to fall in the next 48 hours, with the Met Office upgrading its weather warning yesterday.

MORE: Threat of snow on Thursday and Friday has increased, says Met Office.

It is leading to Highways England to warn drivers about the dangers of black ice and slippy conditions.
