Residents in Clydebank are being warned to brace themselves for treacherous conditions as a cold snap hits the area.

A yellow weather warning for ice will be in place from 10pm on Wednesday, January 16 until 11am on Thursday, January 17.

Icy patches are expected to develop with wintry showers also affecting some areas.

The Met Office has also warned that some injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces may occur and there will probably be some ice on some untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.

A statement from the weather forecaster said: "Icy patches are expected to develop later Wednesday evening or overnight over southern Scotland and Northern Ireland and during the early hours of Thursday over England and and Wales.

"There will also be some wintry showers about, mainly over hills and mountains, but also to some lower levels at times, most likely in parts of Scotland and northern, eastern and central England.

"With the exception of high ground, most places will not see any snow settling."
