Cornwall is shivering on a cold and frosty morning.

Temperatures plummeted to sub-zero in the Duchy overnight.

RNAS Culdrose recorded minus three at one point - and that has left a heavy frost in places.

Officials sent out a fleet of gritters on Sunday evening - and they were activated again in the early hours of Monday morning.

They returned to the depot, were reloaded and sent straight back out.

Mike Peters is in charge of them and told Pirate FM: "We gritted yesterday and we were also out again at 5am this morning with a second layer of salt on the roads that we grit. But it should be remembered that we don't grit all the roads, so anyone out driving this morning should take extra care.

"It's mainly the primary routes - the main routes between towns and also where towns are linked by B-roads. But the best thing is to treat all roads as if they haven't been treated in very cold weather.

"There is no guarantee, just because we have got salt down, that there will be no ice."

Cornwall is set to shiver again on Monday night when temperatures are again predicted to dip below zero under clear skies.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "It will be dry, cold and frosty again with largely clear skies across western counties. Patchy low cloud and fog are expected across the east of the region though. Minimum temperatures will hit -4C."
