The Department for Transport has turned down Surrey’s request for more salt to help tackle winter weather. The council applied to the Government’s salt cell for more stocks after the last prolonged spell of severe weather but was told other areas of the country were higher priorities because they were running out of salt. Before winter the council filled Surrey’s warehouses to the brim with 13,000 tonnes of salt – 50% more than last winter
