Throughout August, we asked residents across our social media channels to suggest names for Cambridgeshire's dragon patchers, as we mark their first year of service in the county. Just like their gritter pals – Gritney Spears, Brad Grit, Usain Salt and crew, we thought it was about time they were named too.
The votes are in and the public has spoken. We are proud to announce 'You've Been Flamed' and 'Al Patch-ino' have been declared as the winning names for our Dragon Patchers!
The winners were invited to a reveal event in Huntingdon at the Highways Depot where they got a chance to meet the Dragons, staff, Cllr Shuter and see the fiery machines in action. See a short clip from the event below.
Watch one of our previous videos demonstrating how the dragon patcher works.
