The Met Office has put out a yellow warning for snow and ice in Derbyshire from 20:00 tonight to 15:00 tomorrow.

The organisation's chief forecaster said there's a chance of accumulations of up to 3cm on lower ground and 5cm in the hills.

However, the warning only covers the north-west tip of the county.

Dave Wade

BBC News

Today, the 3,200 people who work for Toys R Us in the UK will discover if they will still have a job.

There are branches across the East Midlands, including in Chesterfield, Mansfield, Nottingham, and Derby.

Yesterday Leicester City Council said the city's store (pictured) will close after Christmas.

What's being voted on today is a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) which is a step short of going into administration.

That way Toys R Us is hoping it can continue trading while it restructures.
