The heavy snow predicted for Denbighshire has arrived in earnest and gritting teams have been out throughout the night and are out in force across the county.

The Met Office reports that up to 28 centimetres – almost a foot – of snow has fallen in the past few hours

Denbighshire County Council said on Sunday morning that the gritting teams are focussing mainly on the trunk routes and principal county roads. The weather position is at its worst in south Denbighshire and teams are doing all they can to keep the main routes open.
