A further yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office.

The warning outlines: "Showers, wintry in places, will continue to affect northern and eastern Scotland and eastern England through Thursday evening and overnight into Friday morning.

"These are likely to fall onto frozen surfaces allowing icy patches to form.

"From approximately the Humber northwards, showers will often fall as snow inland, with up to 2cm possible in places, and perhaps as much as 5cm over high ground.

"Further south, any snow accumulations are more likely to be restricted to higher ground."

The public are advised to expect:

  • Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.
  • Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.
  • Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
