Black ice warning

First published in by

POLICE are warning motorists to be careful on black ice this morning.

Wiltshire Police received 12 reports of black ice causing difficulty for drivers across the county earlier today.

One of the areas affected is the A360 from Shrewton to Tilshead where a black Mercedes SLK lost control and slid into a ditch at about 7.30am. A police spokesman said: “A number of minor injuries were reported as cars slid on the ice. Fortunately no one is believed to have been seriously hurt.

“We would encourage drivers to check the local weather forecast and to try, where possible, to avoid country lanes which can be particularly hazardous in icy conditions.”
