The Met Office has issued an amber "danger to life" warning for parts of the United Kingdom as icy roads and heavy snow up to 10cm deep is expected to settle a day after the cold snap led to disruption for airports and schools.

Further disruption is expected in other parts of the country.

Its amber weather warning, which mainly covers parts of the South West and South Wales, runs until 9pm on Thursday and Cornwall Airport, near Newquay, was forced to temporarily close.

The yellow warning for ice and snow is from 1pm today to 1pm tomorrow and the next 18 to 24 hours will see cold starts to the mornings with temperatures will generally be between zero to -3C.

"This snow and ice could be disruptive causing delays to travel". Snow amounts will vary with many places seeing very little.
