Primary children shown true grit

Pictured here are Year Three pupils from Mansfield’s King Edward Primary with Coun Kevin Greaves, of Nottinghamshire County Council’s transport and highways committee and Tony Brown, a member of the county council’s gritting crew.

They were asked to come up with some wintry names for the council’s four newest gritting vehicles, which it took delivery of before Christmas.

The names – Gritso, Gritella, Salt and Gritigar and Snow Eater - earned them a visit from one of the new gritters.
