FIVE schools in Suffolk are closed today because of the snowy and icy conditions gripping the county.

Suffolk County Council is reporting the following schools have closed: Palgrave Primary; Worlingham Primary; Mendham Primary; Bungay High School; and Somerleyton Primary.

Worlingham and Mendham were both closed because staff were unable to get into work.

Palgrave said it had shut its doors because roads around the school were dangerous.

Meanwhile Fressingfield Primary is open for children in the village, but children who arrive on public transport have been told to stay at home.

On 23 June last year, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. As I have said before, that decision was no rejection of the values we share as fellow Europeans. Nor was it an attempt to do harm to the European Union or any of the remaining member states. On the contrary, the United Kingdom wants the European Union to succeed and prosper. Instead, the referendum was a vote to restore, as we see it, our national self-determination. We are leaving the European Union, but we are not leaving Europe – and we want to remain committed partners and allies to our friends across the continent.
