Farmers clearing snow can use red diesel
Rules have been relaxed on the use of red diesel to allow farmers to help grit and clear snow from public roads.
HM Revenue and Customs has recognised the role that farmers play during the winter weather and confirmed that the lower-tax diesel can be used temporarily in tractors on public roads to help provide access for communities cut off by ice and snow.
National Farmers' Union regulatory affairs adviser, Ben Ellis, said: "We are awaiting the results of a consultation on a permanent relaxation on the rules for gritting, which we are strongly in favour of."
