The Highways Agency is advising drivers to check the weather forecast and road conditions before travelling today and into Friday after the Met Office issued a weather warning for snow and icy conditions.

Snow has been forecast for east England this afternoon and it forecasters say it will spread south to central parts of the country on Friday.

There are also likely to be severe overnight frosts in the south east.

The Highways Agency is working closely with Met Office forecasters and its winter fleet will be treating motorways and other strategic roads around the clock while the cold weather continues.
