Pupils name new gritters
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.
