The Met Office has issued a warning for ice across Devon in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

A spokesman said following the clearance of rain, sleet and snow, icy stretches "are likely to develop on untreated surfaces ahead of further rain arriving from the west early on Monday morning."

She said there was a chance of a couple of centimetres of snow on the moors and in parts of East Devon this evening but that, as the temperature dips overnight, ice would pose the biggest risk to the county at the start of the week. 

Devon's towns and cities will see temperatures reach around freezing overnight, whilst some rural areas are likely to shiver in minus two conditions.

The Met Office said high level roads are most likely to be affected by ice and people should take extra care and time for journeys early in the day.

The warning was issued from just after midnight until 8am on Monday.
