The state-of-the-art machines can spray and mix of brine and rock salt, instead of just spreading salt on the road.

And the gritters will be a lot greener, with efficient diesel engines as well as the ability to direct their spread much more precisely.

A Central Bedfordshire Council spokesman said: "Salt is harmful to the environment so the less we use the better and it can cost up to £45 a ton."
