LIVE: Stoke-on-Trent snow warning as Met Office issues weather alert

Families in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire are being told to prepare for snow as the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning.

The Met Office has said that snow and ice is expected overnight leading to potentially difficult driving conditions.

The warning will remain in place until 6pm tomorrow (December 28).

A Met Office spokesman said: “Rain may turn to snow, which along with widespread ice, will lead to the potential for some disruption to travel and utilities.

“Some roads and railways likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services.

“Some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces

“Probably some icy patches on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”

The Met Office says families living in Stoke-on-Trent are most likely to get sleet rather than a full covering of snow between 7pm and 9pm tonight.

But light snow showers are expected from around 4am tomorrow.
