Weather forecasters have warned people in Lincolnshire to brace themselves for more snow on Friday, January 18, and Saturday, January 19 as freezing temperatures continue to bite across the county.
Night-time temperatures were expected to drop to -9C in some parts of Lincolnshire on Tuesday, January 22, before rising to 7C during the day on Wednesday, January 23.
A level-three cold weather alert remains in place from the Met Office and police say snow and ice has caused more than 70 crashes on Lincolnshire's roads since last weekend.
Police received 40 calls to report weather-related road collisions during Monday, January 14, with a further 30 on the Tuesday and Wednesday.
This is around three times more than they would usually receive at this time of year.
Meanwhile, Lincolnshire County Council is urging parish councils to join its 'self-help' programme for clearing snow and ice. In return for agreed participation, the county council provides one tonne of salt, for free.
Those wishing to take part will need to agree to:
A contact point for the exchange of information.
The priority footways that are intended to be cleared.
The quantity and location of additional salt supplies.
