Ice warning issued as freezing conditions grip country

Further north and showers were starting to bring snow to parts of Scotland, with flakes falling on inland areas and higher ground.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said: “Be aware that there’s the potential for some icy conditions out on the roads.

“Make sure you give yourself a bit of extra time – you will probably need a little longer to scrape the car as well.”

The yellow snow and ice warning for Scotland is due to remain in place until midday on Thursday, while the yellow ice warning for Northern Ireland, Wales and England – excluding the far South East and Cornwall – expires at 11am.
