Yellow weather warnings for snow and ice are in place until midday on Friday for north-east England, central and north-east Scotland, and parts of south-west England.

Warnings have also been issued for Scotland and Northern Ireland for Saturday, but the Met Office said that more may be needed for Sunday due to a risk of freezing rain and ice.

Temperatures are expected to rise back up into double figures across some areas of the country by next week.
