CITY VIEWS: what is the weather’s economic impact?

DANIELLE FOSTER | GFI
“On Wednesday there were quite a few people off, a lot more made the effort to come in [yesterday]. It’s easy for me to get in to work – other parts of the country find it harder, so maybe they have been more badly hurt.”

FEMI OWOYEMI | STATE BANK OF INDIA
“People’s movements are really restricted and they can’t get to work. It’s not very good for business activity.

For these few days it will have an impact. It’s going to be a temporary thing, not too long.”

TIM LEWIS | CURRENCIES DIRECT
“The suggested cost of £690m a day is a bit over the top. I'm thinking around half that. Lots of our clients are based around the country and they can’t get into work – but people are working from home so deals go through”
