The Met Office says icy stretches are likely on some surfaces tonight and tomorrow morning (Thursday, January 24), leading to longer journey times.

A spokesman said: “Another cold night with a risk of ice, either where surfaces remain wet from daytime showers, or where further wintry showers fall onto frozen surfaces during the night and on Thursday morning.

“Showers will be a mix of rain, sleet and snow, with some slight accumulations possible, mainly above 200 metres.”
