The Met Office has issued a yellow ice warning for Northern Ireland.

The warning comes into place at 9pm on Monday evening and will last until 11am on Tuesday.

Members of the public have been urged to take extra care and be aware of a risk of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

Ice could also pose a risk for motorists on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

"A band of rain will clear Northern Ireland on Monday evening with surface temperatures falling away behind this and icy stretches likely to form on some untreated surfaces" a Met Office spokesperson said.

"Wintry showers will push into the country from the northwest overnight, with a few centimetres possible across northern and western counties, especially over higher ground."
