Snow ploughs are on standby after much of Lincolnshire was told to expect further snowfall, the county council has said.

The Met office said the East Midlands had been put on a yellow alert for snow, with up to 5cm (2in) was expected to fall on Sunday.

The council said it had gritted priority routes overnight and would continue throughout the day.

Flights and train services were operating normally on Sunday.

East Midlands Airport said only heavy or prolonged snow would affect its services.

East Midlands Trains said it planned a normal service, but warned road-users to leave extra time to get to stations.

The county council urged drivers to take care even on treated road surfaces.

It said its snow ploughs had been brought out three times overnight on Friday.
