The BBC says ‘Customers and an Oasis cover band are trapped at the Tan Hill Inn, near Keld, after heavy snowfall.’ It’s still only November, and the BBC weather service has forecast a mild winter. In fact parts of Scotland and the English North East also had wintry conditions with all kinds of damage going on.

A number of people had to sleep on the floor of Britain’s highest pub after Storm Arwen battered Yorkshire.

Twenty people, including an Oasis tribute band, were unable to leave the Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales after being snowed in on Friday.

Elsewhere in the region, strong winds and snow have caused power cuts, fallen tress and travel disruption.

Stranded lorries led to the complete closure of the M1 northbound at Barnsley with severe traffic delays.

Staff at the Tan Hill Inn, which is 1,732ft (528m) above sea level, said they woke up to some 3ft (0.9m) of snow.

Anya Harnett, who works there, said about 60 people, including 40 pre-booked guests, are currently unable to leave due to the weather conditions.
