A yellow weather warning for snow is in place for most of Cumbria, as well as much of England and Wales, later this week.

This is according to the Met Office, which said a period of snowfall could bring some disruption on Thursday in the day and night.

There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.

There is also a slight chance that some rural communities could become cut off, and a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.
