Lincolnshire County Council have used less grit so far this winter as opposed to last winter

Lincolnshire County Council is “not counting its chickens” despite milder conditions causing it to use less salt to grit the county’s roads than last winter.

The authority had 25,000 tonnes of salt in stock at the start of winter in preparation for adverse weather, with 43 frontline gritters on standby.

At the end of January, the council only used 7,536 tonnes of salt compared with 8,924 last year.
