Plummeting temperatures mean the gritters will be out in Northumberland later this afternoon.

The county council is planning to carry out precautionary gritting in several areas, including Otterburn, Alwinton and Harbottle, from 5pm.

Further gritting will also take place from 5am on Sunday morning in north Northumberland, including Rothbury, Thropton, Harbottle, Whittingham and Edlingham.
