In true December fashion the weather outside was indeed frightful yesterday as heavy snow blanketed North Herts, Stevenage and Central Beds.

Predictably there was travel chaos as roads including the A1(M) became jammed, and the Comet received a barrage of complaints as to why gritting had not taken place earlier.

Herts County Council has since sent a detailed account of how many tonnes of grit had been spread on the major roads, with gritting at regular intervals – but the sheer amount of snow seems to have caused havoc.

On the up side, many of you wrapped up warm and got out in it, taking the chance to build snowmen, sledge, introduce your children and pets to the biggest snowfall in years and generally lark about.
