Snowed in? There’s an app for that

Because even a light dusting of snow results in headlines containing words like ‘chaos’ and ‘stranded’, the government’s decided to give us all a hand

Directgov Travel News gives live road and traffic updates, as well as letting you know about delays on public transport (complete with the reason for the delay – the wrong kind of snow, we assume).

It’s all in real time, covers the whole of Britain and presents all the info in a clear, colour-coded, shivering-hand-friendly way.

Cheers, the government!
