Parts of the region have had a snowy start to the day. The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for snow and ice and are warning drivers to take extra care while on the road and allow extra time for their journeys.

There are also flood warnings in place for parts of Lincolnshire and residents are being told to prepare for large waves and possible flooding.

The Ministry of Defence said about 100 soldiers from the Catterick army base have been deployed to Skegness, where about 3,000 residents have been urged to leave their homes or move upstairs.

As snow starts to fall across the Midlands, Nottinghamshire's gritting teams are preparing to head out on the county's roads tonight and into the morning.

A band of rain, sleet and snow is expected later tonight. The Met Office suggests that we will get snow and sleet around 4-6am, which is likely to cause icy conditions.

Garry Chadburn, Electrical and Environmental Maintenance Manager at Via East Midlands, said:

We will be out and about both tonight and tomorrow morning gritting main routes and secondary routes as well as salting footpaths.
