UK farmers help stranded drivers in the snow

Local farmers joined efforts to help drivers stuck on a snowy road in Cumbria.

The footage, captured on March 1 on the A685 near Brough, shows a tractor pulling an articulated lorry that had slipped off the road in the adverse driving conditions.

The filmer writes: ''The local council had their snowplough constantly clearing the snow drifts to try and keep the road open.

''The local farmers were helping by using their tractors and the local mountain rescue team were also assisting where ever they could.

''Its great to see so many different people and organisations working together to help others in such horrendous weather.''
