  • Description

    THE FREEZE UP OVER MOST OF BRITAIN CONTINUES. THERE HAVE BEEN FOURTEEN DEGREES OF FROST AT GRANTOWN-ON-SPEY, AND FOURTEEN DEGREES IN GLASGOW.

    WORKMEN ARE STILL CLEARING A LANDSLIDE OF SNOW AND RUBBLE WHICH BLOCKED SIXTY YARDS OF THE CRIEFF-DUNFERMLINE ROAD, I'M GLENDEVON, YESTERDAY MONDAY. THE SNOW WAS TWENTY FEET DEEP IN PLACES.

    THE AVALANCHE SWEPT DOWN SIX HUNDRED YARDS FROM THE OCHIL HILLS. THE WORK WENT ON IN GALE FORCE WINDS, AND A SINGLE LINE WAS CLEARED FOR TRAFFIC. BUT THE BULLDOZERS ARE STILL HARD AT WORK, AND THE WORKMEN HAVE TO BE MINDFUL OF DANGERS AS THEIR MACHINES COULD TOPPLE INTO THE RIVER DEVON.
