Gritters will be out tonight in Gloucestershire for the first time this season. The County Council says temperatures are likely to drop below zero in parts with the possibility of ice on higher ground this weekend.

They will be out from around 11pm this evening, gritting all A, B roads and some C roads and routes to emergency services such as hospitals and fire stations as well as many bus routes.
