Road gritters out in force in Burnham-On-Sea as temperatures plunge

Somerset County Council's gritters will be out in force in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge over the next few nights as temperatures are predicted to plunge below freezing.

The Met Office says temperatures across Somerset could drop as low as -8 degrees Centigrade by the middle of this week.

The council's gritters, pictured here last winter, will be treating main roads and some secondary roads in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge - as outlined on its gritting routes list - using thousands of tonnes of salt.

Motorists in the Burnham and Highbridge area are being urged to drive carefully on the icy road surfaces over the next few nights.
