Mansfield District Council has said some bins will not be emptied today because of snow

A council spokesman said: "Unfortunately, due to the snow our bin lorries cannot empty all of the bins on today's rounds as they are skidding and it is becoming increasingly unsafe.

"The safety of the public, our staff and public property is our top priority.

"If your bin is missed today, please put your bin out by 6am on Saturday when the refuse team will return to empty the bins.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused."
