  5. Bath shopping centre closed after 'dangerously close' collapse

    Corridor shopping centre with fallen debri

    The Corridor shopping centre in Bath was closed today after two separate roof collapses due to snow.

    Large blocks of stone were pulled from the parapets above its glass roof by a pigeon net, weighted down with snow, a local shopkeeper confirmed.

    There were two separate incidents, which he described as "very serious - they could easily have cause a fatality if they had hit someone".

    The first was this morning, when the public were in the centre. A second collapse happened at around 3.30pm, the witness said.

    But, Friday's snow meant that not many shoppers were around and no one hurt.

  6. Drivers brave the steep hills of the west

    Driving conditions have been very difficult for those in the West today, with snowfall remaining stubborn.

    Highways England have advised drivers not to travel unless it's essential - and when they do, to ensure they have adequate supplies.

    Buses, trains and flights have been delayed and cancelled due to the weather, and the driver below certainly had their work cut out.

    But they have also received praise from this Bristol resident.
