Harrow council are apparently none too happy about Britain’s gritting situation as we enter another weekend of heavy snow. Or rather, they’re miffed about the lack of it:
Councillor Susan Hall, the council’s deputy leader (conservative) said Harrow was waiting on an order of 1,000 tonnes to stop residents from slipping up or skidding on the roads.
Calling the shortfall “pretty outrageous,” she said:
“We’ll do what we can but, if salt suppliers don’t honour their obligations, it doesn’t leave us much room for manoeuvre”.
