A Met Office statement reads: "There is an increased likelihood of accidents and/or injuries from falls. Probably ice on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, making for slower journeys.

"Following the clearance of overnight rain and snow, ice may form quite widely, primarily on untreated surfaces. A cover of 1- 2 cm snow may also affect some upland routes, chiefly above 300m elevation."
