VIDEO: Twice around the world – distance covered by Surrey gritters last winter

With temperatures expected to drop at night this weekend, it has been revealed that gritting lorries covered more than 50,000 miles of road last winter to keep Surrey moving – the equivalent of travelling twice around the world.

The fleet of 39 gritters is once again prepared for action around the clock while the county council has stockpiled 14,500 tonnes of salt and secured the services of more than 50 farmers equipped with ploughs to clear snow.
