With freezing temperatures and snow fall forecast for Tuesday evening and overnight in some parts of the West Midlands, West Midlands Ambulance Service is urging the public to take some simple precautions to stay safe.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “There are simple steps that the public can take to help them stay safe during this wintery weather. If you do have to go out make sure you wrap up warm and wear sensible footwear, helping to avoid slips, trips and falls.
“If the weather does take a turn for the worse, please avoid or delay any unnecessary journeys. If you really need to travel by road, make sure you allow extra time for your journey and be extra vigilant on icy and snow covered roads, ensuring you fully clear your car windows before travelling.”
