Haddo Nuff O the Sna, Grita Thawberg and Snaw Patrol are just some of the amazing names picked for Aberdeenshire Council’s gritters after staff and pupils from schools across the region submitted ideas for new names.

Taking to Twitter the Aberdeenshire Council roads department thanked everyone for their submissions, noting “it was a struggle narrowing it down to 32 names”.
