Snow set to blanket parts of the North

Commuters could face frosty conditions on Wednesday morning with the risk of up to 5cm (2ins) of snowfall overnight on high ground.

The Met Office has issued a weather warning for the north of England, including Cumbria, Northumberland and parts of Yorkshire.

Forecaster Craig Snell said: "Generally on the higher ground and higher routes we could see 2-5cm (0.7 - 2ins) of snow, lower levels could see a dusting.

"The cross-Pennine routes could be a fairly tricky commute tomorrow morning."

Heavy rain is expected and temperatures will also drop.

A warning is still in place in Scotland and Northern Ireland for slippery, icy conditions.

Fine and sunny spells are forecast for the weekend, but temperatures could still fall below freezing overnight.
