MOTORISTS are being warned to avoid unnecessary travel as the cold weather makes roads icy.
Michelle Ullett of South Central Ambulance Service said: ‘We would encourage drivers and walkers to be more cautious and take care when you’re out and about.
‘Please ensure that you only go out if it is absolutely necessary.
‘Roads and pavements continue to be icy so it is important to leave more time for your journey.
‘Properly de-ice your car and ensure that you have all the necessary safety precautions and if you are walking wear safe shoes with sturdy grip.’
