Hexham: meeting has been abandoned due to snowPICTURE: Jon Winter
Hexham's Wednesday meeting falls to snow
HEXHAM'S meeting scheduled for Wednesday has been abandoned with the track still covered in snow.
An inspection at the track was scheduled for 7.30am, but with 18 inches of snow on the track the decision was straightforward for the officials.
Head groundsman, Mark Cameron, said: "The track has been covered since December 16, and we've only had two days in the last three weeks where it has thawed.
"Last night it was -5c although we were only forecast -1c and there's still 18 inches of snow on the track so we haven'tgot a chance."
