Freezing conditions will make for ‘hazardous’ conditions over the next 24 hours, according to the Met Office.

It has issued a weather warning for ice this afternoon (Thursday) and is warning people in the South West to take care.

Its spokesman said: “Once again, ice will be a hazard in places through this period.

“This will happen as heavy showers of rain, hail, sleet and snow alternate with clearer periods, allowing temperatures to dip sharply.

“As a consequence, icy stretches are likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths with some slippery surfaces likely.

“There may also be travel disruption from ice or snow in some places.”

The weather warning is due to remain in place until 11am tomorrow morning (Friday).
