Temperatures remained just above freezing overnight, with highways authorities dispatching gritters on Wednesday evening in anticipation of icy roads.

A yellow weather warning remains in place in East Anglia, hinting at the possibility of snow.

"This will be largely dependent on precipitation intensity and elevation."
