A new yellow weather warning has been issued by the Met Office as the North East is expected to see more snow next week.

The warning is in place from 5pm tomorrow until 10am on Tuesday and covers much of the North East.

Warnings of rain, sleet and snow are in place followed by ice that is likely to cause disruption to travel.

The forecaster has warned that some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times for road, bus and train services.

The Northern Echo:

There could be some injuries to slips and falls as well as a result of icy surfaces and there could be some icy patches on untreated roads.

It comes as the region was blanketed in snow after Storm Larisa wreaked havoc, leading to school closures and road closures.

Schools across the region were forced to close after the cold weather including a number in Darlington such as Beaumont Hill Academy, Longfield Academy and High Coniscliffe Primary School.

Meanwhile, the A66 was also closed overnight and into the morning due to heavy snowfall, before being reopened.

Families were seen out and about enjoying the white stuff while sledging down the nearest hill they could find.

Meanwhile, a three-year-old boy was thrilled to be able to ride his sledge for the first time after it was originally built for Royal baby Archie.

Archie, three, who shares the name with the real prince was given the sledge last summer by County Durham craftsman Malcolm Rolling, who has also made sledges for future King Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

He had hoped to get his creation to Harry and Meghan, but was unable to do so after their move across the pond.
