The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has urged motorists to alter their driving style in order to suit the freezing conditions.

It has emphasised that snow, ice, fog and winter sun can all combine to create different hazards on the roads, with temperatures expected to drop to -14C in parts from this weekend until February.

RoSPA has warned motorists only to make journeys in heavy snow if absolutely necessary.

Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at RoSPA, said: "The most important thing to remember about driving safely in wintry weather is to be prepared. Make sure your vehicle is in good working condition and add enough time for a journey so you are less likely to rush to make up for any delays."

Before driving in wintry conditions, it is vital to ensure cars are in a good condition, or they could be left vulnerable to faults or damage.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801522299-ADNFCR
