Stop the press... it is actually SNOWING on Dartmoor.

Yes the actual white stuff is falling - as the Met Office puts out that weather warning for ice.

The yellow alert will affect areas north of Bodmin, including a stretch of the A30 and A38, as well as all of Devon.

It will be in force from 4pm on Tuesday and across Wednesday morning's drive to work.

But snow has already been falling over higher ground in the south west - with a decent covering over parts of Dartmoor.

"Ice will form in places later on Tuesday afternoon and overnight into Wednesday, especially where wintry showers leave surfaces wet.

"Further hail, sleet and snow showers are also likely at times.

"Accumulations of several centimetres are likely above 200 metres, mainly across western Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and north-west England.

"A small amount of settling snow (1cm or less) is also possible at lower levels in a few places".
