Widespread snow has hit across Northern Ireland, with travel disruption being reported in several regions.

Coleraine, Limavady and Ballymena have so far been the worst affected, while heavy snow showers reached Belfast late on Tuesday afternoon.

Roads in some areas have been closed due to the adverse weather conditions.

The runway at Belfast International Airport has been reopened after being closed on Tuesday due to heavy snowfall.

The Met Office said further sleet or snow showers are expected going into Tuesday night, with areas of high ground being the worst hit.

A yellow weather warning for ice has been issued for Northern Ireland and temperatures are set to plummet to minus two degrees.

"Ice will form in places later on Tuesday afternoon and overnight into Wednesday, especially where wintry showers leave surfaces wet," a Met Office spokesperson said.

"Further hail, sleet and snow showers are also likely at times. Accumulations of several centimetres are likely above 200 metres, mainly across western Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and northwest England.

"A small amount of settling snow (1 cm or less) is also possible at lower levels in a few places."
