...and Met Office issues fresh warning about ice
Folk throughout Lancashire woke up to a winter wonderland yesterday morning.
Snow arrived in many places overnight on Thursday and carried on into Friday.
The county may have escaped the worst of the snow, but it left a widespread covering.
And The Met Office has now issued a warning, saying that even when the snow disappears, there will be a new problem - ice.
The yellow alert, or be aware warning, is valid from today until 11am on Sunday.
The Met Office said: “Although some further slight snowfalls are likely, with 1 to 2 cm of fresh snow in a few places, the focus switches to ice, with sub-zero temperatures persisting over existing snow cover for many areas and spreading back into parts of the southwest towards daybreak on Saturday.
“The public should be aware of the risk of localised disruption to transport during this spell of wintry weather.”
Meanwhile, Lancashire County Council has a fleet of 49 frontline gritters which can treat the 1,500 miles of the county council’s priority road network in around four hours.
