SCHOOLS in Solihull were forced to shut for a second time yesterday after the latest flurries of snow hit the region.

Residents awoke to find between one and three inches had fallen across the borough. At just after 6am, Solihull Council announced that all state schools would be closed.

While most main routes remained clear, there were problems on the side roads. The perilous conditions meant that refuse and recycling collections were once again suspended.

The arctic blast also caused problems at Birmingham International Airport, which was forced to close its runway and cancel several flights.

Refuse and Recycling update:

* Customers whose refuse and recycling was not collected on Tuesday (February 3) will have all refuse collected next Tuesday (February 10) and their normal paper recycling collection. Glass recycling will be collected on Tuesday February 17.

* Customers whose refuse and recycling was not collected yesterday (February 5) will have all refuse collected next Thursday (February 12) and their normal paper recycling collection. Glass recycling will be collected again on Thursday February 19.
