The winners are delighted their entries have been chosen as the new names.

Hundreds of entries were received with many really testing the boundaries of snow-based puns.

Following careful deliberation by the pupils of Sir E Scott school, the new names are as follows: Sleet and Diesel (which was the most popular suggestion), Chlear mi’n Tìr, Slushkentyre, Scar-ice-ta, Slushinish and Brrr E Scott will be seen on the Harris roads in the coming weeks and months.
