GRITTERS will be on the roads tonight as the cold spell continues to affect parts of Lancashire.

Lancashire County Council posted about the news this afternoon.

A spokesman said: "All priority routes in East Lancashire to be gritted this evening and in the morning.

"We have weather predictions ice overnight with temperatures reaching -6 and we expect snow showers in the morning. We will apply salt to all priority routes.

"Priority routes only cover a third of the highway network and ice patches can develop on treated surfaces caused by water run-off from fields or other sources. Ice is most likely on untreated surfaces."
