There have been no reports of school closures across Leicester and Leicestershire today after two days of disruption due to the snow and icy conditions. More snow fell across Leicestershire last night and drivers are being warned to take care especially on side roads that have not been treated. Leicestershire County Council had 17 gritters out on key routes last night. Leicester City Council said gritting teams were also out across the city last night. East Midlands Trains reported no disruptions affecting trains first thing this morning but urged passengers to check for updates. Most bus services are running normally although some routes are avoiding side roads. One service affected is Arriva's route 50 in Leicester which is running along main roads only as the side roads remain untreated. Passengers using First Leicester's 21A service this morning were being warned that it was currently unable to serve Sandhill Avenue due to abandoned cars. An accident on the A46 this morning, near Syston, caused one lane to be closed on the approach to the Hobby Horse island. The road was reported to be clear by 9am. Refuse and recycling services across the county were affected by the wintry weather yesterday and Leicester City Council has warned residents today that collections would go ahead if conditions allowed. Blaby District Council has also told residents that collections in Glenfield, Kirby Muxloe and Leicester Forest East will be attempted where it is safe.
