Motorists have been warned to take care in icy conditions on roads across South Yorkshire.

The Met Office's amber warning means roads across the country are likely to be hazardous.

The weather has caused a number of roads to be disrupted across the county, although main routes across South Yorkshire are open.

Robin Hood Airport closed after the runway needed to be cleared on Sunday, however reopened 16:00 GMT.

Public transport across the county was affected by heavy snow, with a number of routes disrupted.

Bus operator First Bus said on Sunday that routes in Sheffield were operating on main roads only and many routes in Rotherham had been disrupted. Buses were running normally in Doncaster.

Sheffield City Council said its major road network was "passable with care" but its gritters had not been able to clear some secondary routes because of the number of abandoned vehicles.
