An AMBER BE PREPARED warning for SNOW which covered parts of Cumbria and southern Scotland has been lifted.

A YELLOW warning for STRONG WINDS across Cumbria is in place until 12pm today.

This may cause further disruption to travel, with some power cuts and potential damage to buildings.

A YELLOW warning for SNOW covers much of the region and is expected to continue until just before midnight on Saturday 3 March.

Showers and icy surfaces are expected to form, whilst some rural communities could become or remain cut off.

Police: 'Do not drive unless absolutely necessary'

Police on both sides of the Borders are advising drivers to consider whether their journey is essential before travelling.

Driving conditions remain hazardous as snowfall and high winds has caused snow to drift on many roads overnight.
