On Sunday, some roads and railways are likely to be affected and icy patches are expected on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, with the Met warning to expect longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

"We are also advising people to plan ahead over the weekend".

Motorists are being urged to be wary of ice on the roads after disruption in areas hit by snow this week.

While in Scotland, northern England, northern Wales and even as far south as the Midlands, a yellow warning is in place for snow and ice.

The Met Office said "be prepared" amber warnings cover Tayside, Fife, central and southern Scotland and Strathclyde.

Officials say levels remain high and are set to stay that way, with more downpours forecast today.

Last night the bitter temperatures wreaked havoc on the nation, with snow and ice falling after a Met Office warning.
