Snow hits south of England as temperatures set to plunge to -5C

Snow has hit southern England amid plummeting temperatures, as weather warnings have been issued for much of England.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice for large areas of Scotland, England and Northern Ireland.

A warning – covering areas in north-east England, the East Midlands, the east of England, Yorkshire and the Humber and parts of Scotland – will operate from 5pm today until 11am tomorrow.

Another wave, affecting Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset, will be in place until 4pm today.

An earlier warning remains in place until 11am today for eastern Scotland and north-east England up to north Yorkshire.

Other parts of the UK are also forecast to see icy conditions. London will see low temperatures of between 1C and 0C, and rural areas of eastern England could see temperatures drop to -5C.
