Motorists in the region are being advised to take extra care on the roads as the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for widespread fog and snow.

Areas of freezing fog, some dense, are expected to last into Wednesday morning.

Travelling conditions will be difficult with journeys likely to take longer than usual and delays to air travel are possible.

Freezing fog is expected to mean further misery for people hoping to travel today (24 January).

Freezing fog is expected to re-form and become "widespread" across south-west Midlands, with dense patches likely to form elsewhere.

It is expected to slowly thin and lift during Tuesday, but may persist in some areas throughout the day, the Met Office said.
