Arctic temperatures hit Havering
Two schools have been forced to close after the borough was hit by snow and arctic temperatures over the weekend.
Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School in St Mary’s Lane Upminster and Crowlands School in London Road, Romford are both closed today (Monday February 6) due to the weather conditions.
The council’s team of five gritting lorries were out over the weekend treating the borough’s roads.
More than 700 tonnes of salt has already been used.
The council has also said that rubbish collection will go ahead as normal today.
