Gritters were out in Sheffield last week.

Sheffield Council said its fleet of gritters took to the streets on Thursday as part of a training exercise.

Gritters were out in Sheffield last week.

There shouldn't be much need for them to take to road this week either with overnight temperatures not expected to drop any lower than 5°C.

Tuesday will be another fine and dry day, but with a strong wind. Temperatures could reach 15°C.
