STOCKS of grit at Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil are healthy thanks to the milder weather.

The au­thor­ity has to date been out on 17 runs in De­cem­ber 2011, com­pared to 2 in De­cem­ber 2010. Steve Lovelace, who runs a flower stall at Peter­bor­ough City Mar­ket, de­scribed the con­di­tions as “per­fect”, not so cold the plants froze in the bucket, not so hot that they wilted.

He said: “It means a bet­ter shelf-- life for us and the cus­tomer, as long as they haven’t got the heat­ing on too high.”

The Met Of­fice also an­nounced yes­ter­day that 2011 has been the sec­ond warm­est year on record for the UK. It said pro­vi­sional fig­ures show that only 2006, with an av­er­age tem­per­a­ture of 9.7 C was warmer than 2011’s av­er­age tem­per­a­ture of 9.62C.

FULLY LOADED: Coun­cil grit sup­plies are healthy.
