UK snow: 'Gritters will be out through the night'


As forecasters predict snow to fall across much of the UK, gritters are ready to be out in force overnight.

BBC Weather predicted snow after midnight in Wales and south-west England, spreading across central and southern England. Northern Ireland and eastern Scotland will also be affected.

Up to 25cm of snow is expected on high ground with overnight temperatures expected to fall as low as -5C (23F).

Mark King from South Gloucestershire Council said crews would be "working through the night".
