Snow update: travellers told to take care as more forecast amid further disruption
MORE snow is forecast today across London and the South East amid continued travel disruption.
Southeastern train services have been hit this morning including the cancellation of the 9.42am from London Blackfriars to Sevenoaks and the 10am from Charing Cross to Tunbridge Wells.
The Highways Agency is reporting adverse weather at virtually all junctions along the M25.
It said its fleet of snow ploughs and gritters will continue to be out in force across the weekend to ensure roads are passable.
Road users in the South East are being advised to check the latest weather forecast and road conditions before they travel and take extra care when travelling due to the increased risk of adverse driving conditions.
Greenwich Council said on its Twitter feed this morning that gritting teams were out last night, adding all libraries and leisure centres are open as usual today but warning visitors to take care in cold conditions.
AA head of special operations Darron Burness, said: "With the snow compacting down and turning icy, we're likely to see treacherous driving conditions throughout the weekend.
"Any fresh snow on top will just add to the problems."
The Met Office forecast is dull and cloudy for the region today with occasional mainly light snow for many areas, though snowfall is expected to mostly die out later on with maximum temperatures of 1 °C.
Yellow warnings for ice have been issued over much of the country.
News Shopper’s live feed on Friday reported a number of schools closed by lunch time and council efforts to keep roads and streets passable.
