Cold weather warning

A cold weather warning have been issued with the Met Office expecting that temperatures will fall below freezing.

Gritters will be out on the roads during this time

Or follow us on Twitter @CambsCC or the hashtag #GritterTwitter to know when they are out. We ask people to take extra care on roads at this time as though we do grit, ice can still form, especially on untreated roads.

During this time, the elderly and those who are vulnerable are reminded of the simple life saving tips about how to stay warm and well in colder weather.

In Cambridgeshire alone there are an average of 182 deaths per year linked to cold weather.

Keeping warm in colder temperatures is particularly important for older more frail people, those with ongoing illnesses such as heart and lung conditions and the very young as the cold can affect their health. Icy ground is also a hazard that can lead to falls and broken bones.
