Heavy snow hit the UK today, leaving ‘hazardous conditions’ and major roads closed – and there is more on the way.
The Met Office has issued a further warning for ice, snow and heavy rain overnight, into Thursday and Friday.
They warned: “Icy patches are expected on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
“Icy patches are expected to develop on untreated surfaces, pavements and cycle paths and where showers wash off treatment.
“Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces may occur.”
There is a yellow warning for snow in place for Friday.
Motorists were warned of dangerous conditions on the roads and air travellers of potential disruption as snow and ice hit large swathes of the UK today.
Thousands were left without power as wintry weather swept in overnight, with Western Power Networks saying more than 14,000 properties had been cut off.
