Snow disruption continues in Havering
ANOTHER night of snowfall has covered the borough in a magical thick white blanket - but it means the disruption continues!
Around four inches of the white stuff lay thick across the streets and cars making it difficult for some early risers to distinguish between the road and the pavement.
Most of the main roads were cleared to keep traffic moving but many residential roads remained untouched making travelling conditions treacherous.
All 35 primary schools, all 12 infant and junior schools, and at least 15 of the 18 secondary schools will remain closed to the excitement of hundreds of children who get to have another day of fun and frolics in the snow.
Marshalls Park School in Romford will be closing at 1.30pm. We were unable to get information on The Chafford School, in Rainham, or Campion School, in Upminster.
You may also want to watch:
Ravensbourne Special School, the ARC and James Oglethorpe pupil referral units will also remain closed.
On the roads the M25 has one lane blocked and queueing traffic on the anticlockwise carriageway before junction 29 (A127) at Upminster, because of a broken down lorry.

On the railways the severe weather has caused further disruption for commuters with severe delays of up to 40minutes to National Express East Anglia trains, which serve routes into Romford, and some cancellations and delays of up to 25minutes to C2C services to and from Upminster.
Havering Council’s planning committee still intend to meet for tonight’s Regulatory Services Committee at 7.30pm.
