Lincolnshire warning: Please DO NOT travel

Gritter battles to keep roads open

People in Lincolnshire are being urged not to travel as the county’s gritting team attempts to get major roads moving again.

Over the next few hours, the gritters efforts will be focused primarily on ploughing the county’s A roads and most vital links.

The conditions out there at the moment are horrendous - we haven’t faced a challenge like this for quite some time.

Given the overwhelming amounts of snow that we’re seeing, we’re having to focus solely on our major routes for the moment, as we attempt to get the county moving again.

That means many other roads will be hazardous and we’d urge you not to travel at all. We will get on top off this, but it will take time. We thank you for your ongoing patience.

– Darrell Redford, network resilience manage
