Fire service warns against abandoning vehicles in snow

Sat, 09 Dec 2017

The Island's Fire and Rescue Service is urging motorists who get stuck in the snow not to abandon their cars.

Fire crews warn that leaving cars at the side of the road can stop gritters, ambulances, fire appliances and the police getting where they need to go.

The emergency services have been urging the Manx public not to make non-essential journeys to reduce the chance of getting stranded.

Teams from the fire service have been assessing the Island's roads, and warn many smaller roads are tricky for some cars and vehicles.
