Heavy snow and flooding brings chaos for Dorset commuters
Snow and localised flooding is causing chaos for some commuters in Dorset.
Heavy snow is falling across the county as locals try to battle through rush hour traffic.
Shaftesbury is particularly bad, with the town centre and surrounding roads affected by ice and snow.
Even roads in coastal areas are slippery, and in areas where snow is not lying - there is a lot of standing water.

The A352 in Purbeck has been hit badly by flooding, but drivers across Dorset are urged to take care on the roads tonight.
Dorset Police are urging people only to travel if necessary and to drive slowly, ensure all the snow and ice is removed from vehicles and not to make any sudden or sharp turning movements while driving.
Snow is expected to carry on through most of the evening in some parts, while it may turn to rain in coastal areas.
