A member of the Sleaford neighbourhood policing team has shared a video of his experiences of driving on the country roads around Caythorpe yesterday (Thursday).
PCSO Patrick Welby-Everard covers the Sleaford Rural South beat and was in the Caythorpe area contending with drifting snow and treacherous roads when he recorded this dashcam footage.
Lincolnshire Police’s latest message for today (Friday) remains the same - only travel if absolutely necessary. If you are out on the roads don not trust that seemingly clear road - it could be black ice.
You are also urged to check on the welfare of your neighbours and only to use 999 for medical emergencies’
The force states: “We will be working hard today with our partner agencies to try and ensure the road networks around the County are cleared and safe.”
The force also reported that the A607 between Bracebridge Heath and Fulbeck, which had been blocked by drifting snow yesterday, was now clear and open, as was the A16 Driby Top on the east of the county.
