DITCHES, TREES AND HEDGES
Do you have land, including your garden, near a road? Please make sure your roadside ditches are clear and any trees and hedges are cut back ahead of winter.
Blocked ditches can cause floods on the road which can freeze to form lethal ice. Trees left unmaintained can blow over or shed branches onto the road.
