. . . . . and it amazes me that East Ayrshire have closed their schools to pupils only. Staff, apparently, have to attend as normal (according to the BBC website weather updates) Is it only people under a certain age that can be hit by flying masonry, affected by fallen trees etc.? On a similar note, why did some LAs wait until this morning before announcing school closures, when the surrounding LAs announced closure yesterday evening? I don't really see what was 'so confusing' about the Governments advice.
