Commuters faced treacherous roads and icy conditions on their journeys into work this morning on Monday December 20.
People heading into the city also came up against delays with National Express East Anglia trains reporting a disrupted service with delays of up to 40 minutes.
0n the tube most of the lines are suffering from minor delays whilst the Picaddily line and the Metropolitan Line is part suspended, but a good service is reported on the Jubilee and Victoria Lines.
Determined not to let the snow disrupt the last days of the school term, schools including Corbets Tey School in Harwood Hall Lane,Upminster and Dycorts in Settle Road, Harold Hill and Ravensbourne in Neave Crescent, Harold Hill have opened up as usual.

The weather has also put the brake on many people’s festive plans with a number of people unable to get on their flights because they have been cancelled due to the poor weather conditions.
Many main roads and bus routes have remained well gritted while side roads and rural areas have been transformed into ice rinks.
