Weather forecasts are predicting snow and ice to hit Britain this weekend and with that comes chaos on the nation's roads! 

Be prepared for any eventuality with The Best of Macclesfield’s top survival tips.


If you can, plan your journey on mostly major roads, as these stand more chance of being gritted.


Leave plenty of time so you’re not rushing.

  • Warm waterproof coat and boots

  • A torch
  • Blankets
  • A first-aid kit
  • Tow-rope
  • Jump Leads
  • An old blanket to put under the wheels if your car does become stuck
