London Councils said boroughs were working as hard as they could and had diverted staff from other departments so the work would be done faster. A spokesman said: "As well as putting gritters out on the roads from Sunday morning, councils deployed staff to grit footpaths in each of their boroughs. Councils focus on priority footways - those pavements that experience the most footfall - but the majority of secondary roads were also gritted.
