In Pictures: Snow on Scilly

February 28, 2018

February is bowing out in style by delivering the Isles of Scilly's first heavy snowfall for years.


Residents have been excitedly sharing photos of the islands under a blanket of white. Here are just a few that have appeared on Facebook:

Five Islands School closed at 2pm, while the Isles of Scilly Police urged islanders to stay indoors.

They posted on Facebook: "Given the weather conditions if you don’t need to go out then please don’t - especially those driving - There have already been some near misses. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure it’s safe to drive whether that is in a commercial or private vehicle and it follows that if there is a collision or accident it’s down to the driver and not “because the roads aren’t gritted” or “it was icy”. Please be sensible and stay safe."
