Council services are returning to normal following the heavy snowfall that caused widespread disruption.

Surrey County Council said its recycling centres and libraries were open as normal on Monday.

The local authority said Brooklands School in Reigate remained closed due to icy conditions in Wray Park Road.

District and borough councils in Surrey Heath, Woking, Epsom and Ewell, Spelthorne and Elmbridge said waste collections had resumed.

Icy stretches

Tandridge District Council said it hoped to resume waste and recycling services on Tuesday if conditions continued to improve.

Mole Valley District Council said recycling, food waste and garden waste collections remained suspended but refuse collections had resumed.

The UK experienced the earliest widespread snowfall since 1993 causing heavy disruption to the road and rail network.

The Met Office said there was an ongoing risk of icy stretches on untreated roads due to frost across the South East.
