Wirral schools close as snow and freezing temperatures grip the region


Merseyside was blanketed by snow on Tuesday as freezing winds from Russia grip the region and the Met Office have issued further severe weather warnings.

Temperatures will struggle to reach over 0C at times through the week and with this comes a risk of snow.

Wirral woke up to around 4-5cm on Tuesday morning which lead to travel delays, flight cancellations and a number of school closures.
