The Met Office has issued a new warning of snow and ice causing disruption in Cornwall on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.

The yellow weather warning runs from 6pm on January 17 to 12noon on January 18, with the Met Office predicting: "Snow showers and icy stretches may cause some disruption."

Forecasters say accumulations of a couple of centimetres are likely at low levels, with some of the higher ground seeing as much as 5cm-10cm. Icy stretches are likely to form following showers.

Heavy snowfall in parts of the county last night caused widespread disruption and forced around 50 schools to close today.
