Snow continues to cause disruption in Burnham-On-Sea

Wintry weather continued to cause disruption across Burnham-On-Sea on Thursday (January 7th), with schools closed and untreated roads and pavements being in a treacherous condition.

Several inches of heavy snowfall blanketed the area and with temperatures dipping to minus 7 degrees Centigrade overnight in Burnham, there was no sign of a thaw.

The conditions were welcomed by local schoolchildren, who had a second day off school. Temperatures were predicted to struggle to rise only a few degrees above zero, with a maximum temperature of 2°C.

Bus and postal services in the town have been disrupted, but district and county council workers have battled to grit and clear main routes.
