Two vehicles have ended up in a canyon after accidents on an isolated Dales road during yesterday's snowfall.

The cars - one of them a 4x4 - were attempting to traverse the road between Settle and Kirkby Malham when they lost control.

The photos were taken by Thomas Beresford, who described the road as being 'sheet ice underneath snow'.

Yesterday Yorkshire's highest pub, the Tan Hill Inn in Swaledale, was nearly cut off by snow. See pictures of it here.
