Drivers are being warned to take care this morning after the Met Office issued a weather warning for fog.

Fog patches are likely to become more widespread into this morning, with the visibility falling below 100 metres in places.

Although it will thin throughout Thursday, the Met Office says some patches may persist into the afternoon in the west of the warning area.

It could mean journey times are longer than expected.
