Further wintry showers expected over the next few days could lead to icy patches developing. 

Some roads and railways are likely to be affected and journeys by road or train could take longer. 

The Met Office has also warned that there may be some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces, and is advising people to take care when travelling.
