WEATHER and travel warnings remain in place for icy conditions across much of England and Scotland after the widespread snowfall of recent days.

The Met Office has a yellow warning concerning ice in place for all of Scotland and for England, with the exception of the south-west.

It warns that with falls of rain, sleet and snow dying out, there is a risk of icy surfaces and “difficult” travel conditions.

The office has told people to beware of the chance of injuries from slipping while walking on icy surfaces, as well as “some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths”.

Mist is also forecast around Glasgow, which could pose hazards for motorists.

Heavy snowfall amid the cold snap has already caused travel disruptions across sections of northern England and Scotland.

Temperatures were as low as -6C early this morning in parts of Yorkshire and Cumbria, with yellow warnings set to last through most of today.

The Met Office has advised people to clear snow and ice from footpaths outside their homes, preferably in the morning.

“You can then cover the path with salt before nightfall to stop it refreezing overnight,” the advice says.

The deepest snow yesterday was in Bingley, West Yorkshire, and Strathallan in Perth, both of which recorded 11cm.

Becky Mitchell, meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “Saturday is the next day we could potentially see some snow.”
