The Met Office has issued amber alerts for snow and ice in central Scotland and Northern Ireland with as much as 25cm expected to fall on higher ground.

The wind warning will remain in place until 3am tonight.

Luke Miall, a Met Office forecaster, said: 'The forecast for today is it's likely to become a bit more wintry so we could be seeing snow for many areas, with northern and western areas seeing frequent showers.

The winds across the United Kingdom are likely to be gusting to 130km/h in some places, with up to 20 centimetres of snow over high ground. At low levels throughout the warning area, 5-10 cm will be more typical.

The yellow advisory warns of an increased risk of flooding in coastal areas due to high or very high seas in the Atlantic Seaboard.

Met Eireann has officially named the weather front Storm Fionn.
