Snow and ice are set to cause Monday morning misery as the wintry weather dubbed the "mini beast from the east" continues to disrupt the UK.

An amber weather warning for snow is in place in southwest England and the Met Office says travel delays are likely, stranding some vehicles and passengers.

Devon County Council has confirmed the closure of dozens of schools on Monday and described roads as "treacherous", while train services are also affected.

Some places are likely to see up to 40cm of snow, while it could feel as chilly as minus 10C in parts.

On Sunday evening, Great Western Railway said train services were disrupted due to severe weather.
