North Yorkshire drivers warned over 'treacherous' roads

Police in North Yorkshire have issued a warning to drivers because of "treacherous conditions" on the county's roads.

The force said there had been a high number of minor accidents because of ice on many roads.

A police spokesman urged drivers to take extra care.

He said: "There's been a layer of ice on many roads which has been overlaid by rain and we are experiencing a high number of minor accidents."
