Photographers have been out and about this morning capturing the beauty of last night’s snow fall in Brent.
There’s also humour to be found in some of the playful pics that were posted on The View From Dollis Hill Facebook page.
Due to the icy and hazardous conditions gritter bins have been placed in some areas of the borough.
Brent Council says gritting main roads is done on a priority basis to ensure the most important routes are clear for residents, emergency vehicles and public transport.
The grit bins located around the borough are for people to grit their own local roads and pavements if the council hasn’t managed to do so.
Brent came under fire in December 2017 for not gritting roads ahead of snow storms.
Cllr Krupa Sheth, lead member for the environment, said: “We have good stockpiles of salt and our gritting teams will be working tirelessly to make sure we provide the best quality service.
“I would also like to encourage people to look out for older and vulnerable friends, neighbours and relatives to make sure they are safe during this time.”
