I despair at these snowed-up cars
So, we've had our first lot of snow and as I cycled to work at 6.30am on Monday, what did I see?
Two garaged cars and three cars that had the snow scraped off the roof, bonnet and boot.
The rest of the vehicles were running the risk of causing accidents with the amount of snow left on their roofs.
There wouldn't have been enough police on duty to warn all the drivers of their actions.

It wouldn't have been the snow on the road that would have caused the accidents, and insurance companies wouldn't pay out if it was down to a driver's stupidity.
And, yes, I have seen a car brake sharply when the snow has slid off the roof and blocked the windscreen.

Could I, through your paper, please express my gratitude to the kind person who found and handed in my gold bracelet to the staff of TK Maxx on Sunday, January 13.
We had been visiting family in Leicester for the day and I must have lost it when trying on a coat.
The bracelet had huge sentimental value as it belonged to my late mother, so it is very precious to me and I was very upset when I discovered I had lost it.
The person did not leave their name, so I hope they might read this.
It is so inspiring to be reminded how honest, public spirited and generous many people are, and I thank this person in particular for their kindness and integrity.
It has been reported that many viewers have been reduced to tears over David Attenborough's latest TV series, Africa.
Complaints were made that the programme was "too real".
The producer's response was: "We're sorry you're upset, but that's nature".
Would meat-eaters be reduced to vegetarianism if they saw the reality of what happens in abattoirs?
