Merseyside is now on FOUR DAYS of snow and ice weather warnings

Merseyside has been issued further weather warnings today on top of the ones issued at the start of the week.

The region is now on four days of severe weather warnings for snow and ice.

Rain is expected to turn to snow over the hills and fall to lower levels on Merseyside overnight on Tuesday.

Forecasters have also warned the region that any wet surfaces could turn to ice as clear skies allow temperatures to plummet.

Further snow showers are expected through Thursday night and into Friday and the Met Office has warned this could lead to travel delays during the morning rush hour.
