Axe valley cold weather warning
The chilling advice comes from Axminster’s newly appointed “snow warden” – former mayor John Jeffery.
He has been tasked with ensuring the town and outlying areas are ready to combat any big freeze.
And he told members of the town council this week that he was expecting a busy time.
He said: “The Met office are keeping me up to date and at the moment they are forecasting another bitterly cold winter with periods of disruption and heavy snow and ice.”
