Worcestershire gritters head out as icy night predicted
THE county gritting fleet will head out onto Worcestershire's roads this evening as another frosty night is predicted by forecasters.
Following a dry day with some sunny spells, more clear spells are forecast overnight, giving way to a frost and road surface temperatures as low as -5.
Drivers are once again being urged to drive carefully.
Worcestershire County Council's Highways Manager, Jon Fraser, said: "Frost and ice are still presenting hazards on the roads in the mornings so we're taking every precaution in gritting the network to ensure we're supporting our drivers in their efforts to keep safe on the roads."
