HACKNEY residents woke up to an unseasonal flurry of snow this morning as arctic temperatures hit the borough.

The cold snap is as a result of cold air coming from across the North Sea.

A spokeswoman at the organisation which runs the borough’s schools, The Learning Trust, has said no schools so far have been closed but concerned parents should check on the Learning Trust’s website at or call its helpline for further updates on 020 8820 7000.

Which is why it was lucky that Frida Hornsby is only four years old today.
