Snow leads to more school closures for second straight week

THE snow came back heavier - and colder - than ever this week.

Flakes were falling in Falkirk for several hours over Sunday night and Monday morning, leading to more road warnings and school closures.

All schools in the Falkirk area will be closed today (Monday), tomorrow (Tuesday) and a decision will be taken later on this week if schools will remain closed on Wednesday.

Falkirk Council are continuing to clear and grit priority one and two routes, but refuse collection has been suspended until it is safe for lorries to access streets.

All Housing repairs scheduled for this week have been cancelled, with only emergency repairs being carried out for the remainder of this week.

Updates on the situation will appear on The Falkirk Herald website as more information becomes available.
