Gritting crews in Cornwall are preparing to carry out runs overnight to keep roads clear of ice.

Cornwall Council said salt would be spread on roads in northern, central and southern parts of the county early on Saturday morning.

On Friday, snow was reported on Bodmin Moor and in Liskeard.

A flood alert remains in place after it was issued by the Environment Agency for rivers in west Cornwall following heavy rain on Thursday night.

Earlier, First Great Western reported a blocked line between St Erth and St Ives due to flooding.

Three cars became stuck in flood water earlier on Coach Road near St Ives.
