  1. Ice warning as freezing conditions cause travel problems

    Ice has been causing problems across the North East after temperatures dipped to well below zero overnight.

    Police have been dealing with multiple accidents caused by black ice on the Coast Road in North Tyneside.

    The road was closed in both directions and, although it's since reopened eastbound, remains closed westbound. Police say many routes are extremely icy so travelers are being urged to drive slowly.

    Temperatures reportedly dropped to -6C in parts of Northumberland.

    There's a weather warning in place until 10:00 followed by another weather warning for snow and ice tomorrow.
