london gets ready for snowSleet and snow has arrived in London today and bookies are placing their odds on bets on a white Christmas.

Light snow and heavy rain was reporte din central London and those travelling form just outside as a slightly heavier dusting.

Ladbrokes has changed their odds of a white Christmas in London from 7/1 to 9/2.

We're just hoping that after last year things have been put in place to help commuters who travel out of London for Christmas and those who stay traveling around it.

Transport for London  has stockpiled 22,000 tonnes of salt and have 40 gritters all at the ready to be called out, and Boris Johnson has promised to 'ensure that coordinated and swift action is taken to keep the capital moving'. You may have to take to the bikes though.
