Snow in Penshaw.

Many schools in the region were closed yesterday as a result of the 'beast from the east' and as the winter blasts look set to continue for the remainder of the week, many schools have confirmed that they will remain shut.

Hetton School was one such school which will be remaining closed for the safety of its staff and students.

A statement from the school yesterday read: "It is with regret that we have decided that, due to the dangerous road conditions, expected further snowfall and not being able to safely clear paths for students, we have to not open today.

"This is the first closure due to snow in many years at Hetton and it shows how extreme this spell of weather is. Stay safe."
