Now that this Government runs everything from the centre, life in Kent in the next week or two is about to get worse.
KCC has quite admirably over the summer months last year, topped up their grit barns. Not only did they fill them for an average winter, but also added 50% extra just in case of a winter like this one.
Now it would appear that they may have to supply grit to the feckless councils who in the interests of their accountants failed to do the same.
As it is KCC are only managing to keep the main roads open.
UPDATE: More white soot is falling
