HUNDREDS of commuters in Ilfracombe were unable to get to work last week as up to three feet of snow made roads out of the town impassable.
Around 20 cars were abandoned at Mullacott Cross on Friday morning as all routes out of the town proved treacherous.
The town's infant junior school closed due to the weather while only students taking exams were asked to attend Ilfracombe Arts College.
Children spent the day making snowmen, pelting each other with snowballs and sledging down snow covered hills.
Meanwhile, snow and ice caused havoc with public transport and caused a woman to flip her car onto its roof.
