Weather warnings for ice and snow are in place across Great Britain as the Arctic freeze continues.

Rain is expected to fall across Scotland, Wales, and the north and west of England, which may freeze the instant it hits surfaces.

Some 2-5cm of snow is expected to fall in parts of the Midlands.

The Met Office has issued an "amber" warning for the north of England, urging people to be prepared for widespread ice.
