150 slip calls to 999
SLIPS and falls due to ice and snow in the North West have resulted in more than 150 calls to the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) in a week. Additionally there were more than a dozen sledging and even snowboarding incidents as the public tried to enjoy recent flurries.
Now as snow remains on the ground in many areas and with warnings of ice still forecast, NWAS wants to warn to people to take care if they are heading out in the cold weather.
Regionally, Lancashire recorded the most incidents between 28 December and 4 January with approximately 43 callouts
