Fictitious grit

Alison Nicholls, 34, from Bromley, said: “We never see gritters in my road. I heard Boris Johnson say there was 60 per cent more grit this year, but I've seen no evidence. I haven't been offered any or a shovel, just a link to the council's website.”

Bromley said that either end of Ms Nicholls's road had been gritted.

But not the bit in the middle where Ms Nicholls lives. The enormously talented officer responsible for this response is wasted in Bromley and should be instantly recruited by Waltham Forest. And there is only one consultancy capable of spotting talent of this order – in a word, bung the task to Rockpools!
