Yellow warning of ice
From: 1900 on Thu 18 JanuaryTo: 1000 on Fri 19 January

Icy stretches are expected to form on Thursday night lasting into Friday morning.

 There will probably be some ice on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths leading to some injuries from slips and falls.In addition rain, hail, sleet and, over higher ground, snow showers will continue to push across Wales and western England with some small accumulations over the higher ground of Wales. These may lead to some difficult driving conditions in places and some longer journey times.

You can see why the housing market is "broken" when you just change the number of bedrooms through 1 to 2 then 3etc leaving the income and average mortgage payments unchanged! of the calculator on the bottom.

This might be of interest to our members

It might be worth quoting the key suggestions:

There are a few simple tips to help emergency services get to the scene faster and safer:

1: When you hear sirens, stay calm and alert, and avoid being distracted. Keep the noise down, continue to look and listen and be prepared for more than one emergency vehicle.
2: If you can't see the vehicle, other driversí reactions such as slowing down or pulling over might indicate which direction it is coming from.
3: When you see the flashing lights in your rear view mirror, scan the road front and sideways, and try to anticipate which route the driver of the emergency vehicle will take. If you're on a long road with no turnings ahead, it's sensible to assume that the emergency driver wishes to drive straight on and get past you.
4: You should not slam on your brakes or stop suddenly, blocking the road or a junction. Look for a safe area to pull over, and indicate to let other drivers and the emergency vehicle driver know you intend to pull over.
5: Wait for the emergency vehicle to pass and check if there are any more coming. Make sure the way is clear, and signal before merging back into traffic.
