An extended weather warning for snow and ice has been raised by the Met Office for tonight across the north and north-east.
A statement by the Met Office said: “Ice is likely to form on untreated surfaces during Monday night, especially where showers move well inland.
“Some of the showers will be wintry and could produce 2cm to 5cm lying snow above 250 metres, mostly over the Pennines and North York Moors where up to 10 cm is possible.
“Elsewhere, most places will see little or no snow, but a slight covering of a centimetre or so is possible in a few places.”
