Police warning as snow and ice thaw

Police are reminding people to continue to drive carefully as the weather starts to improve.

With temperatures rising, the snow is expected to begin to thaw but both forces say conditions are still very tricky and some roads remain treacherous.

Statement by Assistant Chief Constable Martin Evans on behalf of both West Mercia Police and Warwickshire Police:

"As we enter the weekend it appears the worst of this adverse weather may be behind us, but conditions are still very tricky and we still need people to take care. 

"Many roads remain treacherous due to the snow and ice, so the advice still remains to only travel if you really need to. If you do need to travel, follow your local weather forecasts to help plan your journey, make sure your car is properly prepared and that you have warm clothing. 

"Throughout this period of bad weather we have made sure we have had the people and resources in place to deal with the conditions and maintain our service to our communities, and this will continue throughout the weekend. We also continue to work with all our partner agencies to make sure that together we are protecting the vulnerable in our communities. 

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our workforce and volunteers for the way they have risen to the challenge presented by the Beast from the East and Storm Emma, and gone the extra mile for us in the service of our communities."
