Today has been relatively mild across most of Yorkshire while the south coast has seen freezing conditions.

That is set to change tomorrow as temperatures drop from around 7C today to lows of -1C on Wednesday. Wintry showers could also sweep along the coast.

Humberside Police is urging drivers to consider the weather conditions outside, and tweeted: "If you had to de-ice your car this morning, the chances are the roads are also icy. Please take care and #drivetotheconditions."
