They say only three things are certain in life: death, taxes, and the famous fleet of Hertfordshire County Council gritters.

The nights are drawing in, the frosted lawns have returned, and this can mean only thing - gritting season.

In a new competition for 2019, Herts County Council are giving Royston Crow readers the chance to name their very own gritter.

Following in the footsteps of popular gritters from a bygone era - Brad Gritt, Freezing Frank, Gritney Spears - it is now up to you to name the class of 2019.

If you think you have what it takes, comment your suggestions on either our Facebook page, Gritter - sorry, Twitter - or email your entries to news@royston-crow.co.uk.

Next week, the best names will enter into a final poll where you can then vote to christen the Royston Crow Hertfordshire County Council gritter.

Best of luck - and happy naming!
