Dave Marsh and Oliver Twigg are driving around the Steel City today offering lifts to hospital staff unable to get to work because of the Mini Beast from the East.

Dave, a tree surgeon from Walkey, said he'd been out in his Toyota Hilux and had just dropped off a midwife for her shift at the Northern General Hospital.

"I quite enjoy driving around in the snow and it's a good thing to help people out as well," Dave, 30, of Walkey said.
