The Met Office has issued snow and ice warnings for Derbyshire.

The Met Office has put a yellow warning for ice in place from 8pm on Saturday, January 30, until 11am on Sunday, January 31.

Icy stretches are likely Saturday night and Sunday morning, with some injuries possible from slips and falls on icy surfaces.

There are also likely to be some icy patches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
