Update on weather..Another delivery of salt for West Berkshire.

Amid the severe weather conditions currently affecting the region, the primary road network in West Berkshire will continue to be gritted Monday and Tuesday, following the delivery of more salt-grit from national suppliers.

Gritting of the primary network took place early Saturday evening, and there will another run overnight tonight, and a further run on Monday and Tuesday. Following the success of obtaining more salt yesterday, despite the national shortage, Council highways officers are working round the clock to find additional stocks from any possible source.

Meanwhile, met office weather forecasts predict a slight thaw today, but sleet later on and zero temperatures again come midnight. This means there is the likelihood of black ice on the district's roads, and drivers are urged to take extreme caution.

Further information will be issued as soon as it is available.
