With accidents in Dorchester’s high street this morning as people struggled to get to work, police were advising that home was the safest place to be in what the local paper reports as Dorset’s heaviest snowfall in 17 years.

We’re not sure where that figure comes from – the county has had its fair share of snow in the past couple of years – but the bad weather has affected services across Dorset.

Most of the schools in the county have been closed, including these in the Dorchester area:

Broadmayne First School

Damers First School

Cerne Abbas CE VC First School

Cheselbourne Village School

Dorchester Learning Centre

Dorchester Middle School

Frome Valley CE VA First School

Manor Park CE VC First School

Puddletown CE First School

Sticklands CE Primary School

St. Mary's CE First School

St. Mary's CE Middle School

St. Osmunds CE VA Middle School

Thomas Hardye School

Thorner's C of E School

Winterbourne Valley CE First School
