Western Isles to trial winter warnings on Facebook

Warnings on snow and ice-affected travel on the Western Isles will be posted on Facebook this winter in a trial involving the local authority.

Western Isles Emergency Planning Coordinating Group will update situation reports in the worst weather, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar said.

The comhairle said information on its winter road maintenance policy would be published on its website.

The policy sets out priority routes for gritting in the worst conditions.
