NORTH Somerset woke to a two-inch blanket of snow this morning - but so far, the area has emerged relatively trouble free.

None of the schools in the southern part of the district have been closed by the weather, which means pupils are able to enjoy their last day of term before the Christmas holidays.

Road conditions are difficult, but no major incidents have been reported, although caution is advised.

Ambulance bosses, too, have assured residents they are coping well with the conditions.

However, weather warnings remain in place for North Somerset throughout today and tomorrow, and the Met Office says more snow is likely to follow.

Further scattered snowfall is predicted tonight, with heavier snow expected in the early hours as temperatures hit -4.

Further frost, snow and ice is expected up until Tuesday.
