There have been some travel disruptions this morning after the first dusting of snow in the Meridian Region.

Drivers are being urged to leave extra time for their journeys as ice and snow cover rural roads.

The wintry weather is also affecting trains this morning rush hour. Delays of up to 45 minutes on Southeastern between Ashford International and Victoria due to poor rail conditions between Maidstone East and Bromley South. London Underground are accepting tickets for reasonable routes. Southeastern do not have an estimate for normal service.

Our airports are faring well so far - Heathrow and Gatwick are running as normal despite the snow that has fallen in south east this morning.

However, Stansted airport's runway is closed with commuters facing lengthy delays.
