The Westmorland Gazette has relaunched its successful Grit Watch campaign to help cope with plummeting temperatures and snow this winter.
After the success of last winter’s campaign, we need your help again to let us know when gritting just isn’t good enough in a bid to keep our roads open.
We want to know how well stocked your salt bins are and if your roads have been gritted.
If you spot a problem where you are, email us at email@example.com or Tweet @gazettenewsdesk with the hashtag #WGgrit
