Police are advising motorists to drive with care due to the icy conditions affecting the county’s roads.

In the past 24 hours, police have received just under 40 reports of road traffic collisions across the county. The majority of these resulted in damage to vehicles and there have been no serious or fatal injuries reported.

“Although there have been no serious or fatal injuries, the danger of icy conditions remain. We ask that motorists take care, adjust their driving to match the conditions of the road and allow extra time for any journey.”

– Chief Inspector Matt Kennerley, Operational Support Unit
