4x4 manufacturer is helping out emergency services in the snow
8 February 2007

Land Rover is on standby to offer the services of up to 100 vehicles and their off-road experts, following the extreme weather conditions in the Midlands, Wales and south-east England.

All 10 Land Rover Experience centres across the UK will be on hand to help local emergency services - including highway patrols, fire services and local police forces.

Police in south Wales have already abandoned regular patrol vehicles for 4x4s. Land Rover will also help to recover vehicles broken down in the bad weather and those involved in accidents.

Around 10cm of snow fell overnight in Wales and the Midlands, while south-east England has received at least 5cm. The Highways Agency has advised people not to travel unless absolutely necessary.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
