Bad weather has disrupted a number of ferry sailings between Ireland and Britain this morning.

P&O Ferries' 7.15am sailing from Larne to Troon in Scotland has been hit by the adverse conditions, with the 10.15am return service also cancelled.

Elsewhere, Irish Ferries' Dublin to Holyhead service at 8.45 has also been cancelled along with 12pm return sailing.

Passengers are advised to contact their ferry company to make other arrangements.

Meanwhile, motorists are being urged to drive with extra caution this morning as icy patches remain on many roads.

Eight people were killed in road accidents across the country over the bank holiday weekend, bringing the total death toll so far this year to 68.
