THIS road planer was one of four operating in Wrexham town centre on Monday to clear the streets of snow and ice.

Road planers are normally used to level out the road surface but these machines have been adapted for them to clear away the snow.

Driver Jeff Brooks, a planer driver from Watson Plant Hire in North Shropshire, told the Leader: “There are four of us doing Wrexham town centre today.

“It needs doing. I have just done the market, the planers work marvellously to get rid of the snow.

“We are contracted by the council whenever we are needed.”
