Some schools in Islington are closed today due to the continued bad weather.

Samuel Rhodes and Islington Arts and Media have shut their doors, as has St Aloysius’ College, which will also be closed tomorrow.

Tube lines are running as normal but there are major delays on the Overground from Stratford to Clapham Junction and Richmond due to a lack of trains. The line to Crystal Palace and New Cross is running as normal.

  • Well done the schools staying open, a shame they don’t let the children out to play, snowballs and building a snowman were a great traditional fun activity, now in Islington schools they are penned inside looking forlornly out the classroom windows
