Thick fog and icy roads

Thick fog and icy roads

This evening we're getting reports from some of our ambulance crews of thick fog patches across parts of the East Midlands.

Please take extra care if you are due to go out driving: 

  • Lights on
  • Slow down, and 
  • Keep plenty of distance between your vehicle and the one in front.


Please also make sure you use 999 wisely. Driving conditions for our crews are particularly challenging in fog.

If you have a medical problem but it is not an emergency, please visit to see which healthcare services are available to you and can be accessed out of hours. 

Alternatively ring the free telephone number 111 to speak to NHS111 for telephone advice.
