UK fears for salt supplies

More snow in the forecast

page delimiter


9 Feb 10 - A fresh round of heavy snow is set to hit Britain over the next few days, with London and the South East worst affected, forecasters say.

As much as 5ins (15cm) of snow could accumulate on high ground, with a risk of widespread ice as overnight temperatures drop below zero.

"Shadow Communities and Local Government Secretary Carol Spelman said last night: 'There is now alarming evidence that Britain is unprepared for another prolonged cold snap and salt stocks are close to empty in some councils. If we run out of salt," said Spelamn, "(there will be) severe consequences for the whole economy."

"The Welsh Local Government Association has warned that many councils across the country have failed to replenish grit stocks and may not be able to cope with a new round of freezing temperatures. "

'We are not just talking about Wales, but the whole of the UK,' the association's chief executive Steve Thomas said."
