'Frequent, heavy snow' is set to hit Yorkshire over the next two days - leading to potential power cuts and travel disruption.

Weather experts at the Met Office have warned that snow and hail is set to settle in many parts of the county, and has put a yellow weather warning for snow in place for Yorkshire for Sunday and Monday.

Longer journey times by road, bus and train are likely - and there could be power cuts in some areas.

The forecast says: "Frequent, heavy hail and snow showers are expected through Sunday and will lead to snow accumulating on many surfaces. Longer journey times by road, bus and train services are likely while some vehicles could become stranded.

"Ice is likely to form on untreated pavements, cycle paths and roads leading to some injuries from slips and falls. Power cuts may occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected."

The worst affected areas will be Sheffield and York, according to the forecasts, with temperatures in Leeds hitting a maximum of four degrees but snow being slightly less likely.
