A Yellow Weather Warning is currently in place. According to the Met Office, this means possible travel delays on roads stranding some vehicles and passengers; possible delays or cancellations to rail and air travel and some rural communities could become cut off.

They say there could be a chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces and that untreated pavements and cycle paths might be impassable because of black ice.

Temperatures today will be a very cold two to three degrees, with the weather actually feeling more like minus three - minus four.
