Poor driving conditions expected this weekend

Drivers are being advised to take extra care on the roads this Easter bank holiday weekend, after the Met Office forecast cold conditions will affect many parts of England from tomorrow.

Snow is expected to fall in many places, but more specifically in the East, from late Friday onwards.

Drivers are advised to check weather forecasts and road conditions, prepare for their journey and delay traveling if the weather becomes severe.

They are also advised to carry warm clothing and an emergency pack in the car, which includes food and water, boots, de-icer, a torch and a spade.

Plan your journey before leaving home and make sure you have plenty of fuel for your journey.

Check your route for delays, and the weather forecast.

The Highways Agency said: "Take care around spreading vehicles and vehicles clearing snow and only overtake if you can do so safely, without driving on any uncleared snow.

"These vehicles are performing essential work to help keep roads open and may be traveling at low speed."
