I have read Superintendent Iestyn Prosser's inspiring article in the Gazette about the bravery of Hillingdon Police officers in the falling snow as they continued to maintain a visible presence to keep the roads safe in the borough [Snow, but show must go on for the borough police, Gazette, February 4].
I do hope the police officers have now thawed out after their frozen ordeal and are ready to continue to battle the elements to keep the streets of Hillingdon safe.
This would be a tremendous result, following the falling snow, to continue to see an increased visible presence of police officers on the streets.
I hope Hillingdon Police continue to keep up the good work and remember to thaw out their uniforms before they battle the next elements.

* WHILE the south-east ground to a halt in the snow, one service in Yiewsley did not, and that was the delivery of fresh milk to our doorstep.
Through a world turned white, our man from Dairy Crest brought the family's pints just as usual on the Monday well before 8am. He did so through Wednesday's ice and Friday's slush too.
How he managed it when transport and education were so affected I don't know, but at least our breakfasts went without a hitch. Well done to all involved.
