Drivers warned over icy Derbyshire roads

A warning for drivers in Derbyshire to take extra care in freezing conditions has been repeated by officials.

Despite earlier alerts, only light snow fell across most of the county but some roads were left icy by freezing conditions on Friday.

Driving on the A517 Belper Road in Ashbourne was reported to be particularly difficult.

Main roads have been gritted but motorists have been told minor routes should be used with caution.

The Met Office said temperatures were unlikely to get much above freezing on Friday.

The city and county councils said gritters had worked through the night. No schools were closed.
