Dorset has been given another weather warning from the Met Office - as icy conditions could cause dangerous driving conditions.

Road users and pedestrians should take care between 4.30pm today and 11.30am tomorrow.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Temperatures are expected to fall below freezing overnight.

"Due to the recent wet weather there is an increased risk of icy patches, even on roads that have been treated with salt, where water run off may wash off any earlier salt treatment.

"Therefore the public should be aware of the risk of ice on roads and pavements."

Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing tonight - before reaching a high of 5 degrees tomorrow afternoon.

Dorset County Council will be gritting it's roads from 6.30pm today.
