Road workers have been praised for keeping routes through the Isle clear during heavy snowfall.

Liz Redfern, Epworth councillor and leader of North Lincolnshire Council, praised the “great team work” of contractors C J Drury, which cleared the A161 from Belton to Haxey. Routes between Epworth and Owston Ferry and roads in West Butterwick and Beltoft were kept clear.

She said: “We were able to keep even our very minor roads open.”
