'Snow problem for the Army 06 February 2009

 

Soldiers at Deepcut set to work

Twenty soldiers from 25 Training Regiment, Royal Logistic Corps based at Deepcut set to work clearing snow and ice at the Royal County Hospital in Guildford this week.

The troops offered their services to clear the routes to the hospital's accident and emergency and specialist clinics.

A number of the approach roads were clogged up with parked vehicles that were unable to use the snowbound car parks full of abandoned cars.

Lieutenant Matt Hearth, who headed up the team, explained: "It was becoming very apparent that the extreme weather was causing a lot of local problems.

"We offered our help, and were only too pleased to be able to make a real contribution to an essential community service."
