Some roads are like ice rinks in Cornwall this morning.

That is despite gritters being out since 3am.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "As temperatures fall below freezing on Monday night into Tuesday morning icy stretches are likely on untreated surfaces especially in areas where any further sleet, snow or rain has fallen on Monday. In addition, further rain reaching the extreme southwest on Monday night will lead to an enhanced risk of ice in southwest England. The public should be aware of the risk of travel disruption."

Duloe, Trekenner, Darite, Egloskerry, Upton Cross, Pensilva, Trewidland, St Cleer, South Petherwin and Quethiock primaries are closed.The headteacher of Upton Cross said: "Following heavy snowfall in Upton Cross and very icy roads, staff are unable to make it to school safely, therefore the school is closed."

The headteacher at Carclaze said: "The school car park is dangerously icy. We have gritted where possible. Please could parents avoid driving in where possible. Parents may choose to stagger arrival to avoid congestion around the school."

More schools are opening late. You can find the latest details here.

A spokesperson for First buses said: "Antony Hill, Torpoint, is currently impassable due to overnight fall of hail and subsequent freezing temperatures. Service 81 affected beyond HMS Raleigh.

"Lynher Drive, Saltash is currently impassable due to icy conditions.

"Please take care when walking to your bus stop and as always always wrap up and take care on any pavements or roads that haven't been gritted or have thawed out yet."
