Take care on roads

Drivers are being asked to take extra care during cold snaps after a car ended up on its side after an accident.

The incident happened at Groudle over the weekend when a Smart Car ended up on the MER tracks.

Whilst there were no injuries, police are reminding drivers to take more time over journeys during winter months when it's more likely that road conditions could be slippery.

They say drivers should keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front, use the highest gear possible to avoid wheelspin, manoeuvre gently and avoid sudden braking or acceleration.
