Ready for big freeze.

COVENTRY City Council says it is stocked up and well prepared to keep Coventry moving in the event of another harsh winter this season, by making sure salt levels are at an all time high.

The salt barn in Humber Road, Stoke has been filled to capacity with over 5000 tonnes of salt to help with gritting the city's roads should there be another severe winter.

Coun Lindsley Harvard, Cabinet Member for City Services, said: "We are determined to keep Coventry's roads open during the winter months, and have stock-piled gritting salt to ensure that we have enough, even if we get arctic conditions."
