Council gritters are ready as more ice expected across Rutland and Lincolnshire




Lincolsnhire County Council and Rutland County Council have readied their fleet of gritters "for action" as temperatures across the region are expected to remain low.

The Met Office has again issued a yellow warning for ice across the East of England from midnight tonight (January 21) until noon tomorrow (January 22).

"Ice will form on some surfaces overnight into Tuesday morning across much of the UK," the Met office said in a statement.

Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

The public is also advised to take caution when walking as injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are possible.

Emergency services have warned motorists to take care on the roads if driving between these hours.

Rutland County Council said its gritters would take to the roads tonight as cold weather was expected this week.

Lincolnshire County Council said its gritters were "geared up and ready for action" as it was forecast the region would be "especially cold and icy over the next few days".
