GRITTERS have been out in force this morning, making sure major routes are safe for drivers.

The gritting teams took to the roads in Penistone to help keep the higher roads free of snow and ice ahead of today's snowfall.

A spokesperson for Barnsley Council said: “Our teams are also monitoring the weather and are ready to grit the roads if snow falls in the central and east areas of the borough.”

Please take care on any journey you make while the weather is bad.
