DUP MP David Simpson has hit out at the lack of gritting particularly in the town centres and car parks over this most recent snap of cold weather.

Having received a number of complaints, David Simpson said: “this most recent snap of cold weather has not caught Road Service unawares, in fact it has been forecast for many days. I have written to Minister Kennedy in this regard because ultimately I believe he needs to take responsibility for ensuring pedestrians safety whilst on the roads, on footways and in public car parks. I believe it is unacceptable to say it would cost too much to grit the car parks and town centres.”
