Police warning for drivers in Stamford, Bourne and the Deepings in light of predicted heavy snow
Lincolnshire Police has issued a warning to drivers after it was reported that there is a chance heavy snow will hit the area tomorrow (January 16).
This comes after The Met Office issued its own warning after predicting heavy snowfall and slippery ice in south Lincolnshire for tomorrow, which may lead to travel disruption.
The force has urged drivers to reconsider any planned essential journeys and to reschedule if possible.
A statement reads: "With the current Covid lockdown it is vital that we only travel if essential and when there is a lawful exemption to do so. With a weather warning in place for snow and ice in Lincolnshire all day tomorrow, it is imperative to consider once again if your journey is essential.
"If it can be rescheduled to another day, it should be. Snow and sleet will mean hazardous driving conditions tomorrow. Please only travel in your vehicle if absolutely necessary.
"If you must use the roads and your journey cannot be delayed, please be prepared.
"Make sure you have a fully charged mobile, warm clothing, blankets, boots and a shovel.
"Please drive with extreme caution and in accordance with the conditions, allowing extra time for your journey."
