Front Page News: Too Cold For Grit To Work by Nathan Rao, Daily Express

Chaos is predicted on the roads as experts warned that grit will not work in the extreme cold.

It becomes useless when temperatures plunge as low as -16C (3F), they say. This is because rock salt, used on most routes, is effective as an anti-freeze down to -9C.

But beyond that it fails to stop ice forming on the road.

Forecasters say Britain faces a “whiteout” with widespread snowfall of up to six inches around the country.

Bitter Siberian winds from Tuesday could push temperatures in remote northern areas to as low as -30C with fears of a repeat of the chaos of December 2010 when the UK ground to a shivering halt.

The blast, dubbed “the Beast from the East”, could start to have an effect from as early as tomorrow.
