In a stark reminder of the dangers faced by those who keep everyone else safe, Donegal County Council has confirmed that a gritter went off the road yesterday.

The incident occurred at around 6.30am near Culdaff.

A spokesperson for Donegal County Council said: “Fortunately the incident occurred at low speed and both the driver and his helper were a bit shaken but otherwise uninjured.”

 A crane is being organised to remove the gritter truck in the coming days.
