Thick fog rolled in over Merseyside this morning reducing visibility to very low in some areas.

The fog was that thick at times that Mersey Ferries were forced to suspend its services early this morning until it lifted.

Drivers were also warned to extra care on the roads as visibility was reduced to very low on the M53.

The fog is expected to lift later in the morning and the rest of Wednesday will be a bright day with plenty of sunshine, the maximum temperature will be 12C.
