Police urge people to be 'good neighbours' during snow

We advise motorists to drive with caution in the adverse conditions, moderate their speed and check their routes in advance. As far as the power outage is concerned we know that every effort is being made to restore electricity but efforts are being hampered by the weather. In the meantime I would urge everyone in the affected areas to be good neighbours. If you have an elderly or vulnerable person living near you, please check that they are OK and help them wrap up warm.

– Chief Superintendent Andy Reddick, Durham Police
