    Had a call earlier that was made to highlight the number of vehicles trying to come down from MTB tonight with out chains. Was this an issue?

    There was a crash at Andrews car park. I guess 2:30-3pm ?
    All 2wd needed to fit chains, 4x4 were not required.

    I did see a couple of vehicles struggling around the village without chains fitted.
    The clearer is still doing laps, the snow on the road was quite thick in places,
    pity they don't leave more around, as the thin layer can pack down and freeze
    solid and make even walking difficult.

    I've been up three times in the last week and definitely saw box corner claim a few victims. I run an AWD Subaru with Thules and even I felt a bit of Tokyo drift haha feel sorry for all the camrys.
