THE region is braced for more icy conditions - as another weather warning has been issued lasting until the weekend.

The Met Office, which has published a number of warnings this week, has issued a further warning for ice in all parts of the North-East and North Yorkshire.

Valid from midnight tonight, the warning has been issued following yet another fall in temperatures paired with rain.

The Met Office is warning that injuries are likely due to icy surfaces, while some transport may be disruputed.

What the Met Office has said

A spokesperson said: "Outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow will clear southwards during the early hours of Saturday, but some showers will affect coastal districts.

"Where skies clear, icy stretches are likely to form on untreated surfaces."

The warning will remain in place until at least 11am on Saturday, January 9.
