The Met Office has issued a yellow warning of snow and ice for the East of England.

Sleet and snow showers will affect parts of eastern England later on Tuesday and for a time overnight, when clearing skies will lead to ice forming in places lasting into Wednesday morning.

The Met Office said: “A band of sleet and snow will turn more showery overnight but with some heavier bursts possible, especially over East Anglia.

“1-4cm of snow is possible in places, though rain and sleet may occur along coasts. Ice may be the more widespread hazard.

“Expect some delays to travel, while untreated surfaces become icy leading to an increased risk of accidents or injuries.”
