Elmbridge residents woke up to a light dusting of snow and ice this morning, as the first snowfall of 2013 graced the borough.

Train services and buses ran as usual and there are no reports of school closures.

The Met Office has issued a yellow "be aware" weather warning to London and the south-east and will remain in place until midnight tonight.

The Met Office said: “An area of sleet and snow will move eastwards across England during the early part of Monday, probably becoming light and patchy during the morning as it slows down over south-east England.

“However, another band of rain, sleet and snow is expected to be affecting northern England and south-east Scotland by daybreak, moving south-eastwards through the day.”

The public are advised to monitor the forecast and to be aware of the risk of disruption to travel.
