The Met Office said: "Surfaces may become icy in places on Sunday night and early Monday, making for tricky travel.

"Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths, making accidents more likely and journey times longer.

"Icy surfaces likely, increasing the risk of slips and falls."

Issuing a forecast, the Met Office added: "Cloud and rain quickly moving south through the evening, leaving clear skies behind.

"Temperatures dropping off under these clear intervals, with a widespread, locally sharp, frost soon developing. Minimum temperature -5 °C."

And for Monday, it added: "Very chilly to begin with some hazy sunshine. Remaining dry with occasional sunny spells, the best of these in the east. Still feeling rather cold through the day. Maximum temperature 6 °C."
