SNOW is causing havoc in Crow Country this morning, with roads blocked and schools closing their doors.

Around six inches of snow fell on the Royston area between 8.30pm - midnight yesterday, making driving conditions treacherous.

The A505 between Royston and Baldock is partially blocked, while there have been reports of snow drifting across the A10 between Royston and Buntingford. Abandoned cars on both roads are also not helping the flow of traffic.

Most of the school's in Royston and the surrounding villages are also closed this morning, with secondary schools Meridian, Freman College, Bassingbourn Village College and Melbourn Village College all suspending lessons, while most of the primary schools have followed suit.
