A yellow weather warning has been issued for snow and ice across the North-east.
The alert will come into effect at 8pm tomorrow and will remain in place until 5pm on Tuesday.
A post on the forecaster’s website states: “A spell of rain, quickly turning to sleet and snow, will move southeast across the UK on Monday night and Tuesday, gradually weakening across England and Wales.
“Some roads and railways may be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.
“As rain, sleet and snow clears Northern Ireland and Scotland overnight Monday, ice may form on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”
