Every year West Sussex County Council, in partnership with its highways contractor Balfour Beatty, lets school children name three bright yellow gritting vehicles.

This year Burgess Hill Alternative Provision College’s entry of ‘Grittinator’ was one of the winners, along with Ethan Schmidt, from Ashington First School who came up with Sussex Snowflake, and Rudgwick Primary School’s Samuel Milton with this entry of Ice Cracker.

The winning pupils won a high street voucher each, along with a grit bin, grit salt to fill it and snow shovels for their schools.
