This morning, (Mon), a large number of vehicles (40) were stuck on the hills of the A606 approaching Preston. (Movement on B668 Burley Hill is also dangerous). Police, Council, 4×4 Emergency Response and local farmers were required to clear the road. Both Police and Council report more snow is expected and request that unless your journey is necessary please stay at home.
Bridges over A1.
If anyone sees 4 or 5 youths loitering in the vicinity of bridges over the A1, please report presence to Rutland police. During the last fall of snow 4-5 youths were dropping large blocks of snow and ice on vehicles travelling on the A1. It is extremely lucky there was not a serious accident.
