A Met Office warning is in place for the whole of Ayrshire amid fears of snow and icy conditions.

A yellow alert has been issued for North, South and East Ayrshire - with forecasters warning of travel disruption and extra caution to be taken on untreated roads due to icy patches.

Ice and snow are set to move in around 4pm today, Friday, January 22, and subside around 10am tomorrow, Saturday, 23.

The public are being told to expect "travel disruption tonight and early Saturday" as well as "some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, increasing the likelihood of accidents and injuries."

Commuters are also advised to account for longer journey times by car as well as bus and train services as some roads and railways are likely to be affected by the snowfall.

A statement from the Met Office reads: "Showers will continue at times across many areas, these largely of rain and sleet at low levels across southern England and southern Wales and near coasts but will be of sleet and snow elsewhere.

"These will bring a cover of snow in places. 1-3 cm could accumulate at low levels, mostly across Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England but as much as 5-10 cm of additional snow may accumulate at higher levels of these areas.

"Clear skies between showers will also bring the threat of ice."
