A weather warning had been in force for Tuesday and Wednesday, with a further warning also in place for Thursday and Friday as snow and ice is once again set to cause disruption.

The warning for Thursday and Friday, which is in force from 1pm Thursday until 9pm on Friday, states there could be up to 10cm of snow in some parts.

It adds that "any single period of rain and snow is not expected to last more than 6 to 9 hours. Snow amounts will vary markedly across England and Wales with many places seeing very little accumulating snow. With cold air in place along with areas of rain and snow icy stretches are likely to form."
