Warning to drivers after fresh overnight snowfall

MOTORISTS are being urged to take extra care after heavy snowfall overnight.

The roads are icy and slippy as gritters battle to keep on top of the snow, which is still falling in Stamford.

Police were called out to reports of a car in a hedge in Ryhall Road, Stamford, at about 7.20am and in Rutland, officers were called out to a car veering off the road near the civic amenities site in Cottesmore.

Officers are urging motorists to drive carefully and avoid unnecessary journeys in poor weather conditions.
