Police warn of icy roads across Lincolnshire

A cold start to the week.

Lincolnshire Police are warning drivers to be careful on the roads this morning as temperatures struggle to get above freezing.

Snow and ice is still on many pavements and roads on Monday, December 11, following a wintry weekend which saw snow fall across the county, although not as badly as forecasted.

Highs today are forecast to be just 2°C, with temperatures set to plummet overnight, with lows of -2°C in built up areas, and much lower in the countryside.

Inspector Phil Baker of Lincolnshire Police took to social media to warn motorists to drive to the conditions of the road.

He said that a multi-agency operation had been set up at the force’s HQ in Nettleham, where officers will be working with their partners at Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue.

Inspector Baker said: “The road temperatures are dropping.

“What appears like water on the road could be black ice.

“Reduce speed, leave increased distance between the car in front and gently apply brakes.”
