A yellow weather warning for ice and wintry showers has been issued for Northern Ireland by the Met Office as driving tests are postponed in areas of the province.

Icy patches will readily form on Wednesday evening across Northern Ireland, as melting snow re-freezes. Isolated wintry showers are possible this evening and overnight, these becoming more frequent on Thursday morning with ice forming on untreated surfaces.

Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces are expected.

The Department of Infrastructure said that driving tests are currently postponed at Enniskillen, Cookstown and Londonderry due to the weather.
