"We're ready for the worst the winter can throw at us". That was the pledge from Kent County Council today as its Snow Team prepared for action.

More than 20 thousand tonnes of salt and 60 gritters are on standby. There's also a new high-tech control room. But despite a three million pound budget, when the snow comes only a third of the county's key routes will be treated.
