Drivers have been urged to take extra care on the roads as the wintry weather continues to make conditions hazardous across Berkshire.

Up to 8in (20cm) fell in the county on Saturday and with temperatures remaining below freezing, many roads have become icy.

Police said motorists should only travel if "absolutely necessary".

Most major roads are now clear and conditions are improving but many rural roads remain untreated.

Drivers who do venture out on the roads are urged to prepare themselves by packing warm clothes and blankets, boots, food, drinks, a mobile phone, torch and shovel.

Reading Borough Council have said there may be some delays in bin collections next week due to icy roads but advised residents to put their bins out as normal.
