People are being urged not to travel

People are being urged not to travel as the county’s gritting team attempts to get the county’s major roads moving again.

Over the next few hours, the gritters efforts will be focused primarily on ploughing the county’s most vital links.

Darrell Redford, network resilience manager, said:

“The conditions out there at the moment are horrendous - we haven’t faced a challenge like this for quite some time.

“Given the overwhelming amounts of snow that we’re seeing, we’re having to focus solely on our major routes for the moment, as we attempt to get the county moving again.

“That means many other roads will be hazardous and we’d urge you not to travel at all.

“We will get on top off this, but it will take time.

“We thank you for your ongoing patience.”
