All States schools and the College of Further Education in Guernsey are closed again today (Wednesday), as the island experiences yet more icy conditions.

Elizabeth, Blancheland and Ladies' College, are also closed for the day.

Schools were also closed yesterday and flights were delayed, due to snow.

The Chief Secretary to the Committee for Education, Sport and Culture made an early decision last night to close the schools, in order to give some certainty to parents and businesses.

We will review conditions again before confirming the situation for Thursday, although we are conscious that more snow is forecast for Thursday. Further announcements will be made in due course.
