It comes as Met Office forecasters predict more overnight frost and patchy ice across the East Midlands as we head into December.

The long range forecast reads: “Windy for many over the weekend with a risk of severe gales, especially in west.

"Many places will see a mixture of sunshine, showers and longer periods of rain which could turn wintry, mainly over hills in the north. Overnight frost and patchy ice likely where skies are clear.

"As the period continues winds are generally from the north or northwest allowing unsettled and cold conditions to persist. High pressure is likely to sit to the south of the UK, so rain and showers are more likely in the north, these could be wintry on high ground and perhaps at lower levels at times.

"Likely drier in the south and rather cold at times, with overnight frost and fog often slow to clear.”
