Information Bulletin - Warning of hazardous driving conditions

Drivers are being warned to take extra care today as freezing temperatures continue to affect the Cheshire East area.

There are concerns that freezing drizzle could affect driving conditions into the afternoon.

Freezing drizzle occurs when rain droplets fall on to frozen surfaces, causing ice to form immediately. This can even affect roads which have been gritted.

A warning, issued by the MET Office, is still in place for Cheshire East. This warns people of continued severe weather conditions and further risk of ice and snow.

Cheshire East Council monitors weather forecasts, 24 hours a day, with gritting and snow-ploughing taking place where and when necessary.

Anyone planning a journey over the coming days is urged to check the weather and traffic conditions before travelling.
