The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for fog in the East of England.

Areas of freezing fog, some dense, are expected to form again during Monday night and into Tuesday morning.

The Met Office says the fog will become widespread in places and driving conditions will be difficult with journeys likely to take longer than usual.

It is possible there will be delays to air travel.

The weather warning covers the whole of the Anglia region and is valid from 5pm on Monday 23 January until 11am on Tuesday 24 January 2017

"The fog will form initially, and will probably be most widespread, across parts of the southwest of England, southeast Wales and the southwest Midlands.

"Fog will also form elsewhere but areas of cloud are leading to uncertainty in the timing and extent of the fog and will result in the fog waxing and waning through the night and during Tuesday morning.

"However it is likely that some dense fog patches will develop in other parts of the warning area by Tuesday morning.

"The fog is expected to slowly thin and lift during Tuesday although it may persist in some areas throughout the day."
