Rush hour warning to motorists as big freeze continues
COMMUTERS have been urged to take extreme care in today’s (Thursday) morning rush hour after temperatures plunged below freezing overnight.
The temperature has reached as low as MINUS FIVE, meaning ice is now the biggest problem, after yesterday’s snowfall.
It is expected to remain sub-zero throughout the day.
A police spokeswoman warned that roads – even those that had been gritted – could be treacherous.
She said: “There have been very low freezing temperatures overnight.
