Gritters 'ready for anything' after snow and ice warnings

A yellow "be aware" warning of snow across Wales remains in place on Thursday night, with a risk of snow, sleet and ice on Friday.

The Met Office had warned of rain turning to snow as it moved east across the UK on Thursday, with snow confined to higher ground in Wales.

Snow and ice warnings, forecasting showers of sleet and hail, are also in place for the whole of Friday.

Gareth Richards, head of gritting operations at Caerphilly county's Pontllanfraith depot, told BBC Wales reporter Nick Palit they are working around the clock to get the roads treated.
