VIDEO: Met Office say there is 'chance of a White Christmas'

The Met Office have announced this afternoon that many across our region may see snow this Christmas.

Chief Forecaster Eddy Carroll said:

"We can expect stormy weather in many areas to start the Christmas week, but looking forward to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, we are expecting it to turn colder, with a mix of wintry showers and sunny spells but for wind speeds to drop.

"So there is a chance that some places may see a White Christmas".


Meet the Snowminator

It's not often you get asked to name a council gritting lorry but that's what's happening in Kent over the next week. A competition's being run for children to give amusing, snow-themed names to the county council's fleet of winter gritters.

The "Snowminator" has already been christened, to get things rolling; other suggestions include Auntie Freeze and Snow Farrah. Ruje Yasmin reports, speaking to Carol Valentine and Cllr David Brazier, both from Kent County Council.
