The Met Office this morning issued a yellow weather warning for much of the UK, including parts of East Anglia.

The warning says ice is expected to form from late this afternoon, lasting overnight into tomorrow morning.

“There will probably be icy stretches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths with some injuries possible from slips and falls,” a spokesman said.

It comes after forecasters in East Anglia recorded the lowest temperatures of the year so far last night.
