A grandad who launched a one-man campaign against cuts to gritting in Sheffield says a hard winter would mean ‘political suicide’ for councillors.

Dennis Frost has challenged Sheffield Council’s plans to reduce roads gritted in Sheffield by 100 miles – creating his own dossier of information.

He is calling for a rethink, saying high areas will suffer most and querying the methods the council used to come up with its list of roads to be removed – saying spots will be missed such as Long Lane in Crosspool and outside Grenoside Crematorium.
