Icy warnings as Kent gritters take to the roads

By Amy Nickalls

Eddie Bl-Izzard and Spready Mercury will be out on the roads this evening.

Kent Highways has announced all main roads will be gritted over night before 4am.

Temperatures could fall to below zero during the night which gives the risk of icy patches and ground frost.

In a gritting alert warning, the authority said: "Motorists are advised to watch out for icy patches/stretches particularly on the untreated roads overnight and into tomorrow morning and should expect the surface to be slippery.

"They should drive cautiously and be deliberate and slower in actions and not be surprised by 'sudden' traffic light changes or other vehicles braking."

In November, Kent County Council announced the names of their 17 new gritters, suggested by the public.
