THE Met Office has issued a yellow warning for ice in Fife tonight.

Icy patches will develop overnight on Wednesday and into Thursday morning with wintry showers also set to affect some areas.

Drivers and cyclists are advised to drive with caution as ice is likely to form on untreated roads and cycle paths.

Pavements are also expected to have ice patches.

The warning has been issued for between 10pm tonight and 11am tomorrow.

The Met Office 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."
