Snow and ice prompt travel warnings as temperatures plunge to -7

The remaining three are for snow and ice, covering the western side of Scotland and into north west England until 12pm; central regions, Wales and the north east between 12pm and 11am on Wednesday, and the south east, East Anglia and London from 9pm on Tuesday until 12pm on Wednesday

Forecaster Ellie Creed said: “It’s a case of normal wintry hazards that we would expect – snow, ice, frost are going to be quite prevalent over the next few days.”

In Scotland,  Inspector David Hynd said: “Warnings from the Met Office indicate that showers will turn increasingly to snow on higher ground, then to lower levels later tonight and on Tuesday morning.

“Between five cm and 10cm of fresh snow is expected above about 200 metres, with a cover of one cm to two cm at lower levels. Drivers should therefore exercise extra caution while this is in force.
