No-one was injured in the crash and fire crews worked to make the vehicles safe and clear up a diesel spill.

A Peterchurch Fire Station spokesperson warned that the roads are very slippery.

Herefordshire Council has this morning asked motorists to travel with care.

“We have seen freezing temperatures and snow across the county overnight. If you need to travel this morning please take extra care. Adjust your driving to suit the conditions,” a council spokesperson said.
