FRESH WARNING OF SNOW AND ICE

FRESH WARNING OF SNOW AND ICE

TEMPERATURES DROPPED TO -13C LAST NIGHT

 

Snow and ice could once again blight the UK today.

 

A Met Office yellow weather warning is still in place after the coldest night of the year so far.

 

Motorists are being warned to be prepared for slippery surfaces on untreated roads.

 

James Knight, the RAC’s director of roadside operations said “The message to drivers when out on the road over the next few day is to stay safe. Build in more time for your journey and think twice before driving longer distances if the journey isn’t really essential.

 

 

“Before you set out, thoroughly clear your windscreen and roof of snow and ice, make sure the windscreen is completely demisted, and switch on your headlights.

 

“As it is going to be cold everywhere, we also recommend motorists put together a kit that can help keep themselves and their passengers safe and comfortable if they are unlucky enough to have their car fail on them.
