The Met Office has issued another weather warning for snow and ice this weekend.

The weather warning covers the whole of East Lancashire and is in place from Saturday (March 11) at 3pm until 6am on Sunday.

The weather service say further snowfall has the potential to cause travel delays on roads, causing some vehicles and passengers to become stranded.

Bus and train services may be delayed or cancelled, with some road closures and longer journey times possible.

Untreated pavements and cycle paths might be impassable and there is a chance of  injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

It isn’t the only weather warning to be issued for Lancashire this week.

A yellow warning for snow is in place across most of the county and is in force until 7am on Friday.

In Burnley, as well as parts of Rossendale and Hyndburn, this warning is set to be upgraded to amber from 3pm today until 12pm on Friday.
