Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for transportation, said: "Our gritting teams monitor the weather round the clock during the winter to ensure almost 300 miles of roads in the borough are kept as clear as possible during severe weather. We are continuing to keep a close eye on the weather given the light flurries of snow today and will be responding accordingly. In the meantime, people can keep up to date with all our gritting activity via the council's website at www.dudley.gov.uk."
