Nottinghamshire schools remain closed due to snow

Snowfall in Nottinghamshire
The heaviest flurries have fallen in the north of the county

More than 150 schools and colleges across Nottinghamshire have been closed because of the weather.

The heaviest of the snow has been in the north of the county, but schools across Nottinghamshire have closed.

The county council said the Ashfield, Mansfield, Ollerton and Bassetlaw areas were the worst affected. A total of 97 schools closed on Tuesday.

Many bus services in the north of the county, including those in Mansfield, have been disrupted.

Some home care services are to be scaled back to one visit per day and day facilities for elderly or disabled people will be shut too.

Among the 19 centres closed are Maun View, in Mansfield, Bishops Court, in Ollerton, and the Friary Service, in Newark.

In Mansfield, Stagecoach buses have been struggling to get out of the depot - a limited service is being operated.

The county council says many day centres and libraries in the north of the county are likely to be closed.

Despite escaping the worst of the weather, Nottingham City Transport has still had problems around hilly stretches of Carlton Valley.
