Meet the Snowminator

It's not often you get asked to name a council gritting lorry but that's what's happening in Kent over the next week. A competition's being run for children to give amusing, snow-themed names to the county council's fleet of winter gritters.

The "Snowminator" has already been christened, to get things rolling; other suggestions include Auntie Freeze and Snow Farrah. Ruje Yasmin reports, speaking to Carol Valentine and Cllr David Brazier, both from Kent County Council.
