Angry comments on social media this morning about the state of the gritting or lack of it in Nairn High Street. In the real world there were echoes of the complaints in the virtual one this lunchtime as worried shoppers negotiated ice station Nairn High Street. It was eventually gritted at around 1 pm but not before one or two people had fallen over in the town centre area. Citizens could be seen walking on the road rather than risk the pavement.
Anger was expressed to this observer by two eye-witnesses who claimed that the area outside the Courthouse had been salted before anywhere else on the High Street.
The weather has been cruel, the Council cuts are kicking in but usually the town centre gets gritted, was there a problem with some of the machinery this morning perhaps?
