‘Scared’ woman caught on icy M25 with no fuel and a toddler

One woman was terrified for her youngster when the fuel ran out for motorists trapped on the M25 and M11 overnight in the wintry weather.

As seen by the lack of gritting on the roadways, it seems that the authorities were completely unprepared for the much anticipated and publicized snowstorm.

It meant that when the flakes descended upon the stretch, the London circle was swiftly overwhelmed and came to a complete stop.

A lady and her toddler were in a race against time since the vehicle needed to be heated because the fuel was running low and the outside temperature was below zero.

Micheala Cronin from Hertfordshire openly tweeted about her experience being trapped in the vehicle with her toddler.

Just before midnight, she pleaded: “Please give us an update on how long we will be detained.” I have a kid and am now out of fuel, therefore I can’t heat the vehicle. This is quite ominous.

Never seen anything like this, and no emergency services were there.

Then, around 1.04 a.m., she reported that assistance had arrived: ‘Update!! Finally arrived are emergency services and a grit truck.

The mother posted: “Update. They finally managed to flee at 3.20 in the morning. We are secure in our house. 3am. Thank you everyone, that was terrible.

This morning, it didn’t seem as if the issues had been resolved.

The M25, the busiest highway in the UK, was blocked in both directions between Junction 23 for South Mimms and Junction 25 for Waltham Cross, both in Hertfordshire, leaving motorists trapped for many hours.

The roadway will be “removed and disinfected as quickly as feasible,” according to National Highways.

On adjacent parts of the highway, there are delays that may last up to 90 minutes.

According to National Highways, there are also significant delays on the M11, M2, A21, A27, and A249.

The Sussex Police warned of “treacherous” roadways.

The AA encouraged drivers to modify their driving to account for the chilly weather.

A “do not travel” warning has been issued to commuters by Southeastern after several train lines were shut down.

Services provided by Greater Anglia, South Western Railway, and Southern were also severely disrupted.

After falling through ice and being rescued from a lake in Solihull, West Midlands, on Sunday afternoon, four kids were rushed to the hospital in a severe condition.

The West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service’s area commander, Richard Stanton, issued the following warning: “We know that the weather forecast for the next few days is expected to be bitterly cold. Please, adults and children alike, stay away from open water, and under no circumstances venture on to ice regardless of how thick or safe this ice may be.”

The runways at Gatwick and Stansted airports were closed on Sunday to remove snow.
