As temperatures dip below zero it’s worth remembering that ice, unlike snow, is an invisible hazard. Black ice can be an even greater hazard for drivers and pedestrians and is formed when rain or drizzle fall on a road surface which is at a temperature below zero.
So, with temperatures heading downwards, gritting may be a very sensible idea. Twig is on hand with gritting trucks for roads and tracks – or can carry out manual gritting on paths and pavements.
We will keep an eye on the forecast so that we can carry out preemptive gritting or, if there’s a sudden hard frost we will be out well before sunrise.

In the meantime, here’s some advice from the RAC with regards to driving on icy roads: www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/winter-driving/ driving-in-ice-and-hail/
