Temperatures could be close to freezing in the coldest spots on Thursday, and some regions could wake up to "visibility at or below 100m because of the dense fog", said Met Office forecaster Mark Wilson.

The Met Office added driving conditions will be difficult with journeys likely to take longer than usual whilst some delays to air travel are possible.

A fog warning covering swathes of east Wales, the Midlands and eastern England is now in place.
