Farmers are helping the council workforce with the snow ploughs, and the gritting lorries are travelling behind them to try and clear roads as quickly as possible.

The council hopes if there’s no more snow the roads will be good for the morning commute. It also hopes to get town centre pavements clear at the earliest opportunity.
