FEARS over cars skidding next to a primary school have seen a Windle road added to the council’s gritting register.

Local Tory leader Wally Ashcroft successfully campaigned to have Hamilton Road, which is next to Bleak Hill Primary School, added to the local gritting list.

Coun Ashcroft, pictured right, told the Reporter how he received several complaints about cars skidding along Hamilton Road as children walked to and from school this winter.

He said: “Hamilton Road wasn’t previously on the gritting list because it’s not a main road - it didn’t fit all the council’s criteria.”
