  10. Lincolnshire's gritters kept busy

    It won't come as a surprise that last night was another busy one for Lincolnshire's gritting team.


    The gritters went out on their usual routes at midnight and again at 03:00 this morning, salting and ploughing over 1,800 miles of road each time.

    Gritter crews have also been dealing with any trouble spots which have arisen, with the support of local farmers and contractors.

    They say the biggest problem they're experiencing is high winds which are causing any cleared snow to drift back onto the roads quickly.

    Last year 300 volunteers collected more than 700 bags of rubbish as part of the scheme.

    It's hoped the events will take place at a later date.
