Too much snow, not enough cash

Sweden's local councils are running out of money for clearing the snow and ice from their roads, according to Swedish Radio News.

The harsh winter earlier in the year, and the current early onslaught of winter, has meant that costs have exceeded predictions, and that they will now have to cut back on other expenditure, says P-O Högstedt from Vetlanda local council in the south of the country.

"The money's run out, but we have to keep clearing the streets, we have to carry on", says his colleague, Stig-Åke Almkvist, from Mellerud council.
