Drivers in Nottinghamshire have been warned to take care on the county's roads due to icy conditions.

Snow which fell on Saturday made some roads in Nottinghamshire treacherous for drivers due to black ice, according to traffic reports.

Most of the county's schools were open as usual on Monday with just three closed or partially closed.

Trent Barton buses said they had managed to run a "mostly normal" service with a few diversions in place.

Cancelled matches

Nottingham City Transport said buses were diverted along routes in the Bilborough and Ruddington areas.

East Midlands Airport said it had operated as normal on Monday despite disruption because of the severe weather over the weekend.

Several football matches in Nottinghamshire were cancelled on Saturday because of frozen pitches and the Nottingham Forest match against Derby County at Pride Park on Sunday was also postponed.

A rugby match at Meadow Lane planned for Sunday between Nottingham and Leeds was cancelled because of a frozen pitch.

Nottinghamshire County Council said it had oil-filled radiators on standby to deliver to the elderly and vulnerable if heating failed.
