Malcolm Gibson is one of the 30 volunteers with the Lothian 4X4 Response groupHe says:

"If the roads get snowed or flooded, we can sometimes get through where other vehicles can't and we feel we can make a difference to help people get on. 4X4's don't always get the best of press, and we thought we could try to remedy that."
