This is the treacherous state of Sheffield’s ice-clogged pavements which are still causing problems one week after the last snow fell.

Hospital bosses in the city say more than 180 patients were treated at the weekend for falls – 40 per cent more than on an average winter weekend.

Residents, from Woodseats to Wybourn, have also told of how they are struggling to get around.

One mum said: “Taking the kids to school is a nightmare.”

A call for 121 axed grit bins to be brought back will be put before councillors today. And the cold snap is to continue, with more snow expected overnight.
