Further wintry showers fell overnight and temperatures remain sub zero with a risk of snow, frost and ice on many roads.

The Roads Service said salting of the network began on Tuesday afternoon and snow ploughs were deployed “as necessary”.

They added: “Salt wash-off remains a risk and road users should be aware that even when salting has been undertaken ice-free roads cannot be guaranteed.

“Road users should exercise caution when travelling on all roads this morning.”
