Some schools were shut across Merseyside and there was reported transport disruption on the Merseyrail lines.

The 6:20am train from Ormskirk was stranded when an ‘explosion’ on the line caused power supply problems. Several trains were cancelled but were expected to resume after 10am.

The Met Office expect that the snow will clear by lunchtime and mild temperatures will melt the snow as the day goes on.
