A MANSFIELD WOODHOUSE road has been closed this morning after black ice caused several minor accidents.

Police received reports of three separate minor collisions on Peafield Lane early this morning.

Nobody was injured but because the accidents were as a result of ice, police closed the road between Forest Road and Oakfield Lane and Nottinghamshire County Council’s gritting lorries were called out.

A county council spokesman said that the gritting teams have been out and about around the county this morning doing ‘spot gritting’ on icy roads.

As road temperatures rise, conditions were expected to improve.
