Heavy snow over the last two days has brought chaos to Saddleworth with roads blocked and cars stranded.
Continued snow last night and early this morning saw motorists stranded on Platting Road at Lydgate, drivers either abandoned their vehicles or tried to dig them out, the story was the same on the A62 Standedge Road at Diggle, and on the A635 Holmfirth Road.
Gritters have made clearing the main routes the priority, with many back roads now impassable.
Last night a HGV became stranded at Denshaw as it tried to make its way to Junction 22 of the M62.
There have not been any reports of serious incidents but drivers are advised to make only essential journeys.
