She said: “We have been out salting twice this weekend on all the main roads on our salting route. This includes a salting run on Sunday evening in preparation for Monday morning’s rush hour. Despite this, road conditions have been very difficult across the region and we are sorry to hear that there have been a number of accidents.

“As we have said previously, salting the roads does not make travelling completely safe. While it is the best material we have available to treat snow and ice, if roads and pavements are salted everyone still needs to be careful and should not drive or walk as if weather conditions are normal.

“At the start of the weekend the police issued a reminder to drivers to take extra care on the roads in the expected icy conditions and we would like to reiterate their advice.”
