Surfaces in the east will likely remain wet with ice forming where these remain untreated with some disruption possible during Sunday morning.

Some freezing fog patches may also prove a further hazard, mostly in the south.

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

Icy patches are likely to form on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
