Car drivers warned of Arctic conditions over the next week

ADVERSE WEATHER: Green Flag has predicted over 110,000 breakdowns may occur due to bad weather

AS FORECASTERS warn that Arctic weather is set to return to Britain, bringing sub-zero temperatures as we head towards spring, leading breakdown provider Green Flag has predicted over 110,000 breakdowns will occur on Britain's roads this week.

The Met Office has issued an alert to be prepared for the difficult weather conditions, and forecasters warn heavy rain and snowfall will arrive in the coming days. With the conditions expected to cause havoc on British roads, Green Flag has predicted a breakdown every five seconds will take place across the country as drivers struggle in the cold.

In response to the adverse weather, Green Flag has issued a set of common sense tips on how to drive in snowy and icy conditions for drivers, to encourage them to stay safe on the roads this week.

Simon Henrick, head of news at Green Flag, said: "The return of the cold weather and difficult road conditions may take some drivers by surprise this week. Although we're heading towards spring, the cold weather isn't gone yet - so it's important that drivers do all they can to stay safe.

"By thoroughly checking their cars before they leave home, and approaching the roads with caution, drivers will decrease the risk of encountering a problem on the roads this week."
