The beast from the east has well and truly hit the UK. If you have to make a journey on the roads, here are some top tips for driving in the snow.

  1. Accelerate gently – use low revs and change to a high gear as quickly as you can
  2. Pull away in second gear to help keep the wheels from slipping
  3. Maintain a safe distance between the car in front of you, leaving as much as 10 times the usual stopping distance
  4. Keep your speed down and allow yourself plenty of time to stop and steer
  5. If you do encounter a skid, steer gently into it. Don’t take your hands off the wheel or stamp your foot on the brakes
