With snow and ice forecast, the Birmingham gritters are on duty tonight and will be out and about to treat the roads from 6pm.
We will then treat priority footways from 3am.
UPDATE: We also went out again at 4.30am on Wednesday morning (January 21), to ensure roads continue to be as safe as possible.
Please take care if you are planning to go out folks.
