FREEZING temperatures and snow mean that every school in North Somerset will be closed today (Thursday).

FREEZING temperatures and snow mean that every school in North Somerset will be closed today (Thursday).

Heavy snow in the early hours of Wednesday meant that some 73 of the district's 76 schools were closed yesterday, as treacherous driving conditions and public transport cancellations made travel dangerous.

And North Somerset Council has now confirmed that all 76 schools will be closed today, as the district struggles to come to terms with the cold snap.

Emergency services are stretched but coping, but bus and rail services remain on hold.
