For the first time since 1963 Camden Council brings snow ploughs into operation. About a third of the borough's 176 miles of road are gritted and some main routes such as Haverstock Hill are treated at least 20 times.

The Bishop of Edmonton attacks a controversial new book which suggests that Jesus fathered children and that his descendants are alive today. The book, the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, was written by three men, two of whom - Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh - live in Hampstead. The book argues that Jesus married Mary Magdalene and that their descendants founded the Merovingian dynasty of the Dark Ages.
