The Met Office have issued a new yellow weather warning for snow and ice as temperatures plummet to -10C in some parts of the UK.

Forecasters say the latest alert covers much of Scotland and is in place from 5pm today until 12pm on Monday, December 4.

There are now yellow weather warnings in place for large spans of the UK, with police have declared a “major incident” in Cumbria after heavy snowfalls.

They say people should “only travel where necessary”, especially in the South Lakes and Millom area after motorists were left stranded in the snow.

Superintendent Andy Wilkinson said: “We are working at pace, to help clear roads so those currently affected can get moving.”

The Met Office has warned that 5-10cm of snow is expected to fall in Scotland overnight, leading to transport disruption.

The forecasters warned: “Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths. Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.”

The following areas have been issued with warnings of snow and ice from 5pm on Sunday until midday on Monday.

  • Strathclyde
  • Grampian
  • Highlands & Eilean Siar
  • Central, Tayside & Fife
  • Orkney & Shetland
  • Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian & Borders
  • Wales
  • East of England
  • Yorkshire & Humber
  • North West England
  • West Midlands

Electricity North West’s live power cuts list says there have been 23 power cuts in Cumbria, mainly affecting the South Lakeland area – which includes the worst affected areas of Windermere and Ambleside.

The area woke up blanketed in a thick layer of snow this morning after a day of chaotic travel which saw hundreds of motorists stranded.

Cumbria Police have reissued their warning for people to only travel if necessary.

The force said they saw “challenging road conditions” across the county overnight due to the heavy snowfall.
