SDLP Infrastructure Spokesperson Sinead Bradley MLA has urged people to exercise caution as a winter storm grips transport networks across the North.

Speaking to Newry Times, the South Down MLA said, “Snow is continuing to fall heavily in areas across the North.



“Driving, and even walking, conditions in many areas are extremely treacherous. It’s important that everyone making journeys today exercises extra caution.

“I will be liaising with statutory agencies to ensure everything is being done to improve safety and minimise disruption.



“This is a time for neighbours and communities to pull together. Please check in on elderly or vulnerable people on your street and in your area who may need extra assistance.

“I would also urge employers to give special consideration to those who have long journeys to make today and throughout the weekend.

She added, “The roads are dangerous enough without people rushing to be on time.”
