Heavy snow to hit Hertfordshire
FURTHER ice and snow is expected to hit Hertfordshire hard tonight (Tuesday), with emergency services issuing weather warnings to motorists and commuters to take care when travelling.
Heavy snowfall is expected to hit Hertfordshire overnight, with temperatures hitting a low of minus six on Thursday.
Hertfordshire Constabulary has warned motorists only to drive if necessary, and to take provisions such as blankets, food, a flask of hot drink and a shovel with them in case of a breakdown.
Police also told drivers not to abandon their vehicle if it is causing an obstruction or in a dangerous position, as it can be removed and the owner will have to pay a charge to get it back.
Both the police and the East of England Ambulance service are reminding the public only to call 999 in an emergency, so that patrol cars and ambulances can assist where they are genuinely needed, and to stock up on any medications they may need during the freeze.
