The Met Office issued a yellow warning for ice on Thursday evening.

Sussex was expected to be affected.

A spokesperson said: "A further 1-2 cm of snow is possible in a few places at first, mainly above 200 metres across Scotland, northern and central England, before residual rain, sleet and snow dies out during Thursday evening.

"Ice is then likely to form on some untreated surfaces, with difficult conditions on some roads and pavements by Friday morning."

In an alert on Twitter on Thursday, the Met Office wrote: "Icy roads and paths will give difficult travelling conditions tonight and tomorrow morning."

West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service shared the warning, adding: "Please take care."
