Having mentioned the relatively benign weather of the 31st December in the last post ...
... I do also feel obliged to highlight just how generally appalling the weather has been over the holiday period - and the now totally treacherous condition that many of the Capital's roads and pavements are in.
I've been awash with complaints about the appalling condition of many local pavements and roads, and whilst I appreciate that main routes have to be cleared as a priority, the current weather conditions have now been with us for over two weeks, and very few residential pavements and roads appear to have been cleared?
Frankly, I find it simply unacceptable that so many frail and vulnerable residents have been left at the mercy of such icy streets.
And, to make matters potentially a lot worse, there are now reports that many Councils are running desperately low of gritting salt - whilst all the weather reports are indicating this cold snap will last at least another week, if not two!
Those in charge really do need to get a grip of the vital services they are responsible for and start to remedy this whole unacceptable situation immediately.
