Prepare for winter or Britain will grind to a halt again, says LGA

30 Oct 09 – Britain risks grinding to a halt once again if there is severe weather this winter, says the Local Government Association (LGA), claiming that the country is ill-prepared for further sub-zero conditions.

Their report also attacked the handling of February's snowfall - the worst in 19 years in the south of England - which brought much of the country to its knees.

London had its worst snow for 19 years and bus and train services in the capital were particularly badly affected.

Councillor David Sparks, chairman of the LGA's transport and regeneration board, said: 'When we get bad weather this country should not grind to a halt. 'The rest of the world manages to keep going and so should we.'

A Met Office spokeswoman said there was a 'one-in-seven' chance of a cold winter. She said: 'Preliminary indications continue to suggest that winter temperatures are likely to be near or above average over much of Europe including the UK.

'Winter 2009/10 is likely to be milder than last year for the UK but signals for precipitation slightly favour near or above average rainfall.'
