A Met Office yellow weather warning for ice will come into force at 9pm tonight.

Overnight temperatures are expected to fall close to freezing, leading to icy patches on untreated surfaces.

A few showers are also expected across Suffolk and the far east of Essex – which could lead to more widespread ice in these areas.

The Met Office yellow warning will come into force at 9pm and remain in place until 10am tomorrow, with people urged to take care on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
