THE Sea Terminal was opened as an emergency centre for motorists stranded by overnight snow. Many of the Island’s main roads were closed due to heavy snow up to eight inches deep in places – and others passable only with extreme caution.
Police today (Sunday) once again urged people not to travel unless absolutely essential. Many motorists were forced to abandon their vehicles.
Six people were given shelter in the Sea Terminal before being taken home by civil defence volunteers.
