Snow hits Dover as parts of Kent covered in dusting

Kent has been hit by snow as parts of the county have been covered in the white stuff.

Several centimetres of snow have been seen covering the Whitfield area of Dover, and the Eurotunnel terminal in Folkestone was said to have a light covering.

It comes after weather forecasters predicted wintry showers in Sussex and Kent today.

The bad weather has already led to a crash between at least two cars on the A256 Sandwich Road at the Tilmanstone roundabout.

Police and fire crews are at the scene after a Ford Focus and a Mini ended up in a ditch on the South bound carriageway due to the snow.

The incident happened at about 8am, and one lane was closed.

A Kent Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: "No one was trapped and there was no signs of fire so the firefighters weren't actually required.

"One appliance attended." 

But other parts of the county have remained largely unaffected by the first snow of the winter to hit the county.
