Gritting teams urge everyone to park carefully

Lancashire's highway teams are urging people to park carefully to make sure the gritters can do their job during the coming cold snap. They're warning that parts of some gritting routes often go untreated because drivers don't leave enough room for vehicles to get past.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice on Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures are forecast to stay low for the rest of the week, with the general outlook showing the prospect of further wintry weather to follow.
