In the early hours of 30th November 2010 the snow started falling. By 07.30 the roads were deep in snow and the traffic was beginning to snarl up. Schools were closed and trains to London ran late. This is probably the earliest heavy snow we have ever seen.
All the schools closed except the Buttsbury infants and Juniors and Brightside closed at 2pm.
The snow kept falling all day which was not forecast.
The video is of conditions in Perry Street filmed during the morning.
