EAST YORKS: Almost 50 motorists were trapped for up to four hours by snow.
The A1079 Arras Hill at Market Weighton was closed in both directions after heavy snowfall and a four-vehicle accident on Wednesday.
As first reported on the Mail's website, Humberside Police said they had dozens of calls about traffic disruption and collisions from 3.30pm until about 10.30pm.
Council snow ploughs and gritters were brought in to clear the main route between York and Hull but struggled to reach the most affected areas.
John Skidmore, East Riding Council's head of streetscene services, said the weather was "atrocious".
He said: "We just literally couldn't get through to get everybody moving."
E YORKS: A painting by Bridlington artist David Hockney has fetched £3.5m at auction.
The 1963 work, entitled Great Pyramid At Giza With Broken Head From Thebes, was sold as part of a Post-War and Contemporary Art auction by Christie's on Wednesday night.
It is the second-highest amount ever paid for a Hockney work at auction.
The painting commemorates Hockney's first trip to Egypt at the age of 26.
Egypt had long been a source of fascination for Hockney, first appearing as a theme in his work as early as 1961.
The auction in London made almost £82m in total.
E RIDING: A scheme to install more than 2,000 solar panels could take place in Tickton, near Beverley.
CKL Properties Ltd has submitted plans for the scheme on land next to Kinetic Special Vehicles Ltd on Weel Road.
The solar panels would produce 250kw of electricity for the nearby business.
There has been an objection from one neighbour, claiming there is not enough tree screening and the entrance to the site is dangerous.
East Riding Council's planning committee will consider the application in April.
