Winning names for Lincolnshire gritters revealed
Almost 300 entries were received for the county council's gritter naming competition.
At the end of November the county council asked residents to help it come up with names for its four biggest gritters, looking for creative and witty suggestions with a Lincolnshire theme.
The authority received almost 300 entries and has now whittled them down to the best four. The winners are:
-The Spread Arrows
-Sir Ice-acc Newton
-The Jolly Gritterman
Coun Clio Perraton- Williams, executive support councillor for Highways, said: "We've had some great suggestions and it was really difficult to pick just four.
"However, the winning entries were particularly creative and original and all had a distinct Lincolnshire connection.
"We'd like to thank everyone who took part – I think that we've been able to come up with four fantastic names for our gritters!"
