Occurred on March 17, 2018 / Stainmore Cumbria, County Durham, England

Info from Licensor: "Me and my son were on our way home from Hamsterly forest. When we approached Stainmore the weather got worse and visibility was down to about 20 metres. The traffic slowly came to a standstill on the summit and we were in a traffic jam for approximately 1 hour. The weather became worse and became a blizzard as shown in the video, we thought we were there for the night . After an hour we started moving forward and after a short distance we started to see the police lights flashing through the heavy snow blizzard and realised there was an accident, there appeared to be many vehicles involved but not to severe, the ambulance was also in attendance. There were many vehicles on the eastern carriageway that were stranded in the snow, we continued very slowly on the road until we approached the area of warcop army training base. We then came across another road accident involving 4 cars and a lorry. Police were in attendance and recovery vehicles on stand by, traffic was heavily backed up on the westbound carriage way and still the snow was coming down, it was now dark, we then continued slowly our journey home safely"
