Police van skids into ditch on A1 at North Witham as officers urge motorists to drive to the conditions
A police van had to be towed out of a ditch after skidding in the snow on the A1 yesterday afternoon (Sunday, January 24).
Officers were trying to cross the A1 at North Witham when it skidded into a dip in the central reservation.
All the officers managed to escaped without injury.
Sergeant Dan McCormack of Grantham Police urged motorists to take even more care in the snowy weather.
He tweeted from the scene: "This goes to show that even trained and skilled drivers can get caught out by the snow and ice.
"Thankfully no injuries to officers or damage to the van and the van was towed out.
"Please drive carefully in all conditions."
It comes as the road between Stamford and Bourne, the road between Bourne and Colsterworth, and the A15 are all said to be treacherous this morning as a result of ice.
