More snow, sleet and rain is to hit parts of the country as the Met Office issue new weather warnings.

Forecasters are warning of hazardous driving conditions with disruption to travel in parts.

Yellow weather warnings have been issued for the West Midlands, parts of Eastern England as well as Yorkshire and Humber.

The Met Office say some roads and railways are likely to be affected by the "slow moving" band of rain, sleet and snow with an increased likelihood of traffic collisions.

In their latest warning, they claim: "The area of precipitation currently across this region is expected to be slow moving, with snow falling across higher routes (above 300 m), and potential for heavier bursts to bring temporary lying snow down to around 100 m above sea level.

"Accumulations are not expected to amount to more than a a few centimetres, and will often be transient.

"As the precipitation eases later today, and warm air becomes increasingly mixed in, any wintry element will eventually become confined to the highest ground this evening, where impacts are less likely."

It comes after many woke up to a blanket of snow this morning as temperatures plunged overnight.

Kent, East Sussex and Essex have seen their first snow of the season as forecasters warn another "significant" 10cm blast will hammer parts of the UK.

People living in parts of southern England - in an area from Cambridge down through Hastings and in Devon and Cornwall - woke up to a covering after temperatures plunged as low as -10C in the UK.

Snow, sleet and rain were wreaking havoc for drivers as police in Cornwall responded to multiple crashes on the A38, A30 and A3078 in Trewithian, where a car had flipped over.

Police warned on Twitter: "Multiple RTC’s on the A30 around #GossMoor - people driving at totally inappropriate speeds."

Just days into December, the Met Office issued a rare snow warning for parts of east London, Kent, East Sussex, Essex, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.
