The Met Office put out a yellow warning for ice on roads for this morning. Gritters have been out overnight on Leicestershire's main routes.

Crews are also expected to be out gritting for the rest of the week, as well as being on standby for the weekend should temperatures continue to fall below freezing.

Around 170 tonnes of rock salt will be spread across 17 routes in the county.
