GRITTERS have been sent out on Sheffield’s roads this evening ready for the first severe early frost of the winter.

Sheffield Council’s contractors Amey sent gritting wagons out from 4pm to ensure the whole ‘priority network’ - 720 miles of city roads - has been treated by the time the frost sets in at around 9pm.

Motorists are being asked to give gritters a wide berth and to make sure they leave ample room when parking this evening, to allow the trucks to drive down roads properly.
