NAMING Hampshire’s newest winter gritters is ‘snow’ joke for highways chiefs.

Transport firm Amey, which runs the county’s winter maintenance scheme, has named two of its gritters Freddie Salted and Crunchie.

The idea came from Year 1 and 2 pupils at Petersfield Infant School.

Hampshire’s highways team is on alert from October until the end of April to tackle wintry conditions.
