People in Gloucestershire are waking up to temperatures of -4C this morning.

And snow has fallen in some areas of Gloucester.

The Met Office is predicting temperatures will creep up to 1C by 3pm but it will feel like -1C.

Drivers are being warned to watch out for treacherous conditions on the roads.

Fog is causing problems on the M5 into Worcestershire.

The Met Office and Highgways Agency have advised people travelling in icy or snowy conditions to:

-Have warm clothes, food, water, boots, a torch and spade in your vehicle.

-Let someone know when you expect to arrive and your route and check on vulnerable neighbours.

-Slow down — it can take 10 times longer to stop in snowy or icy conditions

-If you start to skid, gently ease off the accelerator and avoid braking. If braking is necessary, pump the brakes don't slam them on.

-If you go outside wear several layers of clothing and keep dry to prevent loss of body heat.
