Travel disruption is possible in Lincolnshire, with snow flurries and icy conditions expected.

A severe weather warning has been issued for Lincolnshire by the Met Office for Friday, with further snow expected over the weekend.

There were light snow flurries on Thursday night and widespread frost in some rural areas such as the Wolds.

The icy conditions have also forced the Red Arrows display team to move their training to Anglesey in Wales.

The aerobatics team usually flies from RAF Scampton near Lincoln, but Squadron Leader Mike Ling said he hoped it would not be long before it could return from RAF Valley back to Lincolnshire.

East Midlands Airport said it was advising passengers to check with their airline for the latest flight information after flights were temporarily suspended.

Steady snow fell from about 11:00 GMT on Friday, prompting the airport to close while the runways are cleared.

The Highways Agency has advised road users to take extra care and to be prepared for the conditions.

East Coast and East Midlands Trains have told passengers to check before travelling.

The Met Office said more snow was expected at the weekend, with a high risk of ice.
