Heavy snow closes schools in Birmingham and the Black Country

Several schools are closed across Birmingham and the Black County after heavy snow fell.

About 45 schools have taken the decision to shut, mainly in the Walsall and Sandwell areas.

The Met Office issued an amber weather warning for the West Midlands saying snow is likely to continue to fall throughout the day.

Flooding closed St Chads Queensway until 13:00 GMT causing traffic delays in Birmingham city centre.
