Derbyshire gains support for grit action

Derbyshire County Council has been handed national support for its gritting plans, which have involved the use of several warning signs.

The backing has come courtesy of the Health and Safety Executive's chair Judith Hackitt, who has written a letter to the authority, approving of its efforts in clearing the county's roads, reports the Matlock Mercury.

Ms Hackitt said: "Clearly there is a lot more common sense in Derbyshire. We may need many more authorities to be encouraging residents to do the responsible and neighbourly thing."

She went on to say that there is no health and safety reason for authorities not to follow Derbyshire's lead, as they are setting a great example.

Health and safety efforts were recently recognised by the British Safety Council's Sword of Honour scheme, which acknowledged the work of firms such as Alstom and Aspire Defence Capital Works.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800773291-ADNFCR
