Gritters are out in Derbyshire.

“We started gritting secondary routes in the Peak District at 1pm and will grit primary routes here and high routes around Chesterfield from 5pm.

“All primary routes across the county will then be gritted from 1am.”

Not all Derbyshire areas are expected to see significant snowfall – but conditions in parts of the Peak District look set to deteriorate.

At 5pm on Friday, this was the latest Met Office forecast for Buxton.
