A yellow weather warning for snow is in place for 24 hours from midnight on Sunday throughout the day when temperatures are set to plunge.

The warning stretches from the east coast, across the Midlands, down to London and the south coast.

The Met Office said: “Snow showers are likely throughout Sunday, and where these converge some snow may well accumulate and could then prove disruptive. There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.
