It has been another cold night, even colder for central southern Britain than Sunday night. There is widespread ice, where snow melted slightly or rain showers came yesterday evening and now have frozen solid. Do take care. There has been lots of gritting and salting going on overnight. Do fully clear your windscreen before setting off and leave a bit of extra time.
