Snow causes school closures and disruption in Burnham-On-Sea area

Many schools in the Burnham-On-Sea area are closed today (Tuesday, February 3rd) due to the severe winter weather.

Somerset County Council announced that King Alfred School, Beechfield, Burnham Infants, Highbridge Children's Centre, Berrow School and St John's would not be open due to the slippery conditions caused by snowfall during the last 24 hours.

Motorists are being urged to take care if they venture out onto the roads.

Most roads in Burnham town centre are not gritted, resulting in slippery surfaces. The M5 motorway at junction 22 was running freely early Tuesday morning.
