It was business as usual for the council's winter service as Cleethorpes got its first taste of seasonal snow over the weekend.

Gritting teams treated the network at 3pm on Saturday afternoon to make sure there was a good layer of salt prior to the onset of the snowfall.

At 7pm the teams started their second run just as the snow started to cross the region.  By 9pm the snow had become heavier with significant drifting on the Wolds.  Additional crews were brought in to support the operation and following a sustained period of ploughing all routes were open.

By around 5am on Sunday morning, the priority road network was running clear.

Salting treatment continued on Sunday afternoon.

This morning (Monday) the gritting teams are treating the secondary network, with one team reacting to reports of ice and operatives checking and refilling salt bins.

In total over the weekend the gritting teams used 90 tonnes of salt.

The forecast for the week ahead is dry during the day with spells of sunshine. Overnight will be dry with clear spells and road temperatures below zero with icy patches.

    There is a definite thaw happening in Cleethorpes - but still some of pavements are dangerous, so yet again it was nice to see council workers throwing sand on the the walk ways - well done lads!
