A photo posted online showed snow covered roads at junction 22 of the M62, which has the highest stretch of motorway in the UK.

Further snow is likely across parts of the southwest of England, easing from the north by morning, with a few light snow showers for other southern counties for a time.

The Cardiff City away game against Derby is also one of a number of events to be called off.

A yellow weather warning for ice will remain in place for much of the United Kingdom until 10am on Monday morning.

Some bus routes in the Irish capital have also been curtailed due to the weather and Bus Eireann said there has been disruption to services in the eastern region.

"It will be bitterly cold with some snow for many places over the weekend", said Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill. Snow drifting across hills.

It comes after British Airways was forced to cancel 70 flights on Saturday ahead of the Siberian blast.

Great Western Railway advised passengers not to travel on Sunday, while Arriva Trains Wales said all lines were blocked between Newport South Wales and Hereford.


In a tweet the airport said: "There have been a small number of cancellations today due to the weather".

He said: "Gritters will be out treating our roads around the clock, but it is still important to drive to the conditions when snow is forecast".

In a statement posted on Facebook on Saturday organisers said: "It's with a very heavy heart we have to once again cancel the Admiral City of Newport Half Marathon".

"Icy patches will form on untreated surfaces, pavements and cycle paths".

Drivers have also been urged to be prepared before setting out on journeys this weekend, with Highways England advising motorists to avoid trans-Pennine roads "if possible".

"It's worth remembering that cold temperatures - indoors and outdoors - can affect health, particularly in young children, older people and those with heart and lung conditions".
