A first yellow warning which was supposed to end at 4am was just extended by the Met Office given the risk of ice in the Central Belt, Tayside and Fife in Northern Scotland.

Marco Petagna, media advisor for the Met Office told Express.co.uk: “Rain coming into contact with frozen ground, and some snow on hills above about 4 or 500m, will continue to give some icy patches into the morning.”

The yellow warning suggests that anyone going should be extra-cautious not to slip or fall on icy surfaces.

Bus and train services may be delayed or cancelled, with some road closures and longer journey times.

Roads, pavements and cycle paths could become quite quickly impassable.
