As snow starts to fall across the Midlands, Nottinghamshire's gritting teams are preparing to head out on the county's roads tonight and into the morning.

A band of rain, sleet and snow is expected later tonight. The Met Office suggests that we will get snow and sleet around 4-6am, which is likely to cause icy conditions.

Garry Chadburn, Electrical and Environmental Maintenance Manager at Via East Midlands, said:

We will be out and about both tonight and tomorrow morning gritting main routes and secondary routes as well as salting footpaths.
