A number of schools have already announced plans to close across Suffolk and north Essex this morning after snowy weather hit the region.

INFORMATION: SUFFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL

Kesgrave High School is shut today due to boiler issues while Hedingham School and Sixth Form in Sible Hedingham is also closed to pupils and sixth-form students.

Bosses took the decision to shut their doors last night, but both hope to re-open again tomorrow.

INFORMATION: ESSEX COUNTY COUNCIL

Shortly before 12.30pm today, Hillside Special School in Sudbury confirmed it will be closed from 1.30pm today, as will Ringshall School.

Boxford CEVCP School will close from 2pm.

Parents are being warned of treacherous road conditions as the snow that hit Suffolk and Essex froze again overnight creating icy surfaces.

Gritters have been out on main routes and plan to go out again this morning.

Weather forecasters are also expecting a second spell of the white stuff to hit Suffolk and north Essex later this afternoon.

We will keep this page updated with the latest information from schools across both counties.
