Snow and sleet have made driving conditions difficult across Oxfordshire.

There was no major snow fall overnight, but areas including Kennington, Wantage and Abingdon had a dusting. Snow later turned to sleet.

Motorists are being advised to allow extra time for their journeys, slow down and be aware of standing water.

Councillor Lorraine Lindsay-Gale, from Oxfordshire County Council, said: "We will react as the weather changes."
