The Met Office’s “yellow” warning for much of the UK lasts until 10am, after which temperatures are expected to rise.

The warning states ice is likely to form on untreated roads, increasing risk of accidents and injuries due to falls.

Further snow has also been forecast for southwestern parts of England - though East Anglia is not expected to see any more.

It comes after a weekend of sub-zero temperatures, high winds and a dusting of snow in many parts - but far less than had been forecast with minimal disruption compared with the chaos brought by The Beast From the East a fortnight earlier.
