More than 100 schools in Suffolk to close today after Storm Darcy hits county with snow and ice




Dozens of schools across Suffolk have announced they will be closed again today, after heavy snow ground the county to a halt.

The effects of Storm Darcy have meant that more than 100 schools will be closed to vulnerable children and those of key workers - many of which will be shut to all pupils for a second day running.

The primary schools in the county which will be closed are:
