The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning of ice for Lancashire.

It is in place from 4pm today until 11am tomorrow.

Ice is expected to form on some surfaces and a few centimetres of fresh snow are also likely on high ground.

It is likely there will be icy stretches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths with some injuries possible from slips and falls.

The chief forecaster's assessment says: "Whilst a brief spell of snow is likely, mostly on high ground in the north of the yellow area, the main hazard is likely to be icy surfaces where rain falls onto frozen ground.

"This risk is greatest across parts of Scotland and northern England where the impacts could locally be greater than elsewhere.

"Temperatures may then rise a little for a time overnight before falling again by Wednesday morning as cloud clears, so ice remains likely."
