Meanwhile, Derbyshire County Council says gritting teams are prepared for any adverse weather which may affect us throughout the week:
We'll be using all our gritters to cope with whatever the weather throws at us, and we’ve got plenty of grit. If we do get significant snow this week please look out for vulnerable neighbours and stay safe. 2/2 pic.twitter.com/RcwFG77Sox— Derbyshire CC (@Derbyshirecc) January 28, 2019
