Snow has been causing difficult driving conditions in parts of north Wales.

A Met Office "be aware" warning for snow was in force for Conwy, Flintshire, Wrexham, Denbighshire, eastern Gwynedd and northern Powys, from 06:00 GMT.

Gritting teams have been out in many areas, with Denbighshire council saying the weather has affected refuse collections.

Around 2cm (1in) of snow has fallen so far in the Wrexham area.

Although roads are hazardous, all main routes are clear.

Up to 4cm (1.6in) could fall on lower ground, with more than 10cm (4in) possible on hills.

It follows a warning earlier this week for eastern parts of Wales, but the snow was not as heavy as expected.

The Met Office forecasts rain and sleet to spread eastwards on Wednesday with snow more likely on high ground.

Drifting is possible on higher ground in strong winds, and drivers are being warned of the risk of icy roads.

The Met Office says snow should ease and turn to rain later in the day.

Traffic Wales reported no problems on the roads at the start of the rush hour on Wednesday.
