Zoe Hanson, Rural Motor Claims Specialist at NFU Mutual said these roads can “take longer to thaw”.

She has also warned these areas may not be gritted as extensively as main routes which could see some motorists lose control of their car completely.

Ms Hanson said: “Icy country roads are extremely challenging for even the most experienced drivers, and rural accidents are common where roads aren’t gritted and it’s easy to lose control of the vehicle.

“Even if you think a frost has thawed, bendy country lanes with high hedgerows, trees, gates, or bridges which block the sun are often the first areas to freeze and take longer to thaw, creating patches of ice which thaw at different rates.
