Barkway First School closed

Accident on Newmarket Road as snow hits Crow country

SCHOOLS across Hertfordshire are opening as usual today (Tuesday), despite snowfall overnight.

At time of writing, just two schools across the entire county had announced they would be shut due to the weather, including Barkway First School near Royston.

The other is Preston Primary School, near Hitchin.

The confirmed reason for the closures is unconfirmed as yet, though it is expected to be due to the snowfall.

However, many schools have said they would be monitoring the situation as the day progressed, with more snowfall forecast.

South Cambridgeshire District Council have so far had no reports of closures this morning.
