Snow joke as winter bites hard

Weather woes have once again dominated the headlines over the last week or so. While the heavy snowfall across our patch has undoubtedly turned the area into a winter wonderland, the bucketloads of white stuff have caused more than their fair share of chaos.

For motorists it has been more like an episode of ‘Dancing On Ice’ rather than the usual traffic battles during rush hour.

For parents they have been forced to play roulette with their working lives when it comes to childcare amid school closures.

Is enough done to prepare us for wintry weather?
