SNOWFALL has resulted in the closure of schools - including some in Ryedale.

The county council announced the following closures:

  • Rillington Community Primary
  • West Heslerton CE Primary School
  • Weaverthorpe School will close at 12.30pm
  • St Hilda's CE Primary School and St Benedict's RC Primary School, both in Ampleforth
  • Malton Community Primary

Other schools on higher ground including Goathland Primary School are also among the closures - the full list of which can be found here.

Malton School has said in a tweet "buses will leave at 3.15pm (except 195 to Hovingham which leaves at 2.15pm) All other students will be discharged at 3.15pm. Tonights PDA is cancelled".

This list is being frequently updated.

Travel has also been hit. Coastliner buses announced on Twitter that services running to Whitby will terminate at Thornton-le-Dale.

The snowfall has since crept southwards from the Moors and this morning is affecting areas across Ryedale.

Emergency services have urged caution on the roads.
