The Met Office has announced that there will be a weather warning in place for Wednesday and Thursday due to expected snow and ice.

The warnings are in place from 9pm on Wednesday, March 11 until 10am the following day. All of Ayrshire is included in the designated area.

Roads and railways are likely to be affected and commuters are to expect delays.

The public are told that there's likely to be some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

The Met Office also warn of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

They said: "Showers are expected across the northwest of the UK from Wednesday evening onwards, these falling as sleet and snow even to low levels at times away from exposed coasts. Some accumulations of snow are expected, mostly above around 150 m where more than 2 cm is likely in places. In addition an area of rain will move across parts of southern Scotland and northern England on Wednesday evening, again with some snow possible but this mostly above 200 m. Surfaces will remain wet from this rain and the showers with icy stretches expected to form."

The warning is in place for the majority of Scotland, Northern Ireland and most of Northern England.
