With Storm Dennis only just getting started, slip trips and falls in the ice and wind are a serious risk.
It’s important to remain cautious and vigilant in such extreme weather conditions. If you are in an area of high risk do not travel. Nothing is as important as your safety, so don’t risk it.
Make sure you look out for areas of black ice when walking and driving, and ensure your car is equipped to deal with emergencies (i.e. breakdowns in negative Celsius temperatures).
Be wary of public spaces like train or bus stations that will have slippery floors due to water being tracked in by commuters and crowd.
