April chill bites back

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

LAST month was the third warm­est March on record with an av­er­age tem­per­a­ture of 7.7C.

It was also the fifth dri­est and third sun­ni­est.

But chilly weather has re­turned to much of Scot­land - with 6in of snow in Aberdeen­shire.

Grampian Po­lice said Mo­ray had taken the brunt of the weather. Heavy snow has also fallen across the Scot­tish Borders, but roads re­main pass­able.

A moun­tain res­cue team was called to help a group of nine peo­ple - in­clud­ing six teenagers - stuck by snow in the Cairn­gorms. They were flown to safety by a Royal Navy he­li­copter.
