Thick fog to engulf most of England tonight as Met Office issues warning
Thick fog is expected to blanket much of the UK overnight and beyond rush hour on Tuesday morning.
The Met Office issued a yellow alert for fog which could freeze in some places and disrupt transport across England and the eastern edge of Wales.
The warning, in place from 7pm until midday on Tuesday, encompasses most areas south of Scarborough and east of Manchester in the north, and east of Exeter in the south.
Temperatures are also set to dip to near 0C (32F) overnight for many areas, meaning the fog could freeze on some roads.
Met Office forecaster Craig Snell said motorists should allow extra time for their journeys.
He said: ‘The fog is going to be most widespread in southern, eastern England, into the Midlands and the east side of Wales too.
‘Not everywhere within that warning will be foggy, but the main message to drivers is to allow some extra time for your journey because there could be fog around.
