Home to School, social care and access bus services have all been cancelled for today. All other services involving transport are likely to be disrupted.

Funeral services have not been disrupted.

Registrars are operating as usual but are asking people to only attend if their appointment is essential.

The council says further outbreaks of light snow are possible at times today - 1cm to 3cm in places. The temperature will reach around zero celsius so not much thawing is expected to take place.

Tonight the temperature could drop to between -1 and -3 celsius, meaning widespread ice on any untreated surfaces.
