Gritting crews are battling to keep Cambridgeshire's roads open as snow blankets the county.
Nearly 40 gritters are heading out on local roads today (Wednesday, February 28) as forecasters predict 'heavy' showers overnight and early tomorrow.
The county council gritting crews will be hitting the road this afternoon, and are set to go out again from 7pm tonight.
Then they will make a third sweep of the county at 3am on Thursday, to try to keep roads open for the morning rush hour.
A Cambridgeshire County Council spokesman said: "Brad Grit, Gritney Spears and the rest of our 37-strong fleet are fully equipped to grit the roads when the temperatures drop.
"The weather forecast is monitored 24 hours a day and updated four times between 5am and 10pm.
"Over the last week our gritter crews have been out eight times since last Wednesday when the cold weather set in.
"Our gritter teams treat all primary routes which cover 44 per cent of our road network, keeping the county's roads moving during any cold weather we might get."
Not every road in the county will be gritted. The council focuses on the primary routes, described as roads that "serve as major connecting routes for communities and allow the majority of users to commute and access essential services across the county."
Other roads described as "secondary" routes will be gritted "when there is a forecast of a prolonged cold spell, where road surface temperatures fall below zero or snowfall is forecast."
The council doesn't grit major roads like the A14, M11, A21 and A428 – that's done by Highways England.
