EAST Lothian residents are being told to be ready for possible snow and ice after the Met Office issued three yellow 'be aware' weather warnings covering the county.

Ice and snow is expected across parts of Scotland and north-west England up until late morning tomorrow (Wednesday).

The Met Office describes its warnings as having a 'medium' likelihood but a 'low' impact and people are warned that some roads and railways could be affected and that surfaces could be icy.

Current weather forecasts for East Lothian suggest it is unlikely to snow, with areas further south more likely to be affected, but there is a significant risk of ice as overnight temperatures are set to plummet well below zero.
