Snow clearing underway in Sheffield

26 gritters as well as tractor ploughs, JCBs and other vehicles are out trying to clear the roads of snow in Sheffield.

Our operations are continuing and will do so until the snow is clear. Roads will be cleared in priority order. We are also doing all that we can to keep the pavements clear. We have been clearing snow from pavements on key city centre routes, around hospitals and around key shopping centres. This work has been ongoing since early morning and we have around 300 staff involved in this.

– Cllr Jack Scott, Sheffield City Council
