Council sends gritter to get widow to husband's funeral

A gritter was sent to clear a woman's street after an on-air radio appeal to the leader of Oxfordshire County Council.

Becky Aries asked Ian Hudspeth for help to reach her husband's funeral on BBC Radio Oxford, after heavy snow left her road impassable on Monday.

He said he would see if anything could be done and within two hours the council sent a gritter to clear her road.
