GRITTERS are out on the county's roads again as temperatures remain below zero.
Although no more significant snow is forecast for Worcestershire, the county council's gritting teams have been out since 1pm today (Monday) to treat all designated routes.
Vehicles in the north of the county have also been fitted with ploughs to clear away any snow or slush still on roads.
Jon Fraser, highways customer and community manager, said: "Forecasts aren't predicting heavy snow like we experienced on Friday and over the weekend. However, temperature on roads will dip to as low as minus five overnight. That brings the real risk of ice.
"Gritters will be out this afternoon and into the evening treating designated routes - around 1,000 miles worth of road - and conditions will be monitored throughout the night.
"As ever, we'd urge people to take care if they are driving. Roads should look clearer tomorrow morning but motorists can't get complacent. Please slow down and leave extra space between yourself and the vehicle in front.
