Hundreds of schools were closed for a second day across Britain on Tuesday as snow continued to disrupt travel across the country. Winter enthusiasts took advantage of the thick snow, with some children out zipping down hills on their sledges. Farm animals in Tintern, south Wales carried on with their days seemingly unfazed by their white surroundings. Meanwhile for many grown-ups, the weather was less fun. Drivers and other travellers were left facing difficult journeys as icy conditions persisted across much of the country. The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for ice until around midday Wednesday, with Scotland and the north of England likely to be most affected. \u0022There will probably be icy stretches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths with some injuries possible from slips and falls,\u0022 the Met Office said.
