Ice warning issued for Berkshire's flooded roads

Motorists in Berkshire are being warned to take extra care with plunging temperatures leading to icy conditions.

West Berkshire Council said roads in some areas of the district were still affected by the recent heavy rainfall.

A council spokesman said: "The water on the roads in these areas is so deep, gritting has no impact. They could freeze over into sheet ice."

Roads have been badly affected in the Lambourn Valley, East Ilsley, Compton and Hampstead Norreys.

A Met Office yellow warning - advising drivers to "be aware" of the danger of ice is in place as driving conditions could become hazardous.

Snow is forecast for most parts of the county on Monday.
