Somerset gritters ready for overnight temperature drop

Gritting teams in Somerset are on standby once again as overnight temperatures are expected to drop to zero.

Crews will be out spreading salt once more before nightfall as drivers are asked to take care on the county's roads.

Somerset was included in a Met Office amber alert for icy conditions.

The county escaped much of the snowfall which caused widespread travel disruption across much of the UK.
