HEAVY snowfall has caused havoc across Welwyn Hatfield, with drivers urged not to make journeys unless absolutely necessary.

Motorists have reported roads becoming increasingly snow-logged, as County Hall gritters endeavour to keep routes clear.

Several schools closed early this afternoon as the weather became more severe.

And there have been delays on First Capital Connect services.

The company said: “Snow and icy weather conditions are being experienced across our network today and is leading to disruption to some services. Please check our live train updates page before travelling and allow additional time for your journey if necessary.

“Restrictions on what time passengers can travel home this evening using certain tickets has been lifted.”

Snow is expected to continue over the weekend, and drivers have been urged to avoid unnecessary journeys.
