It may be the first week of spring - but gritters are preparing to take to Derbyshire's roads.

A Derbyshire County Council spokesperson said: "It seems winter hasn't quite done with us yet.

"We're expecting temperatures to drop tonight so will be out gritting all primary routes at 9pm, then all secondary routes at midnight.

"Please take care as wet roads and low temperatures are not a happy mix."
