THE icy blast which has hit North Wales brought untold disruption in its wake, and a warning has been issued over hazardous conditions on the region's roads.

Traffic was brought to a standstill in Wrexham Flintshire and Denbighshire, emergency services were on high alert and key facilities and shops shut in the face of the weather, which experts said was the worst to hit us in a generation or more.

And the region is being warned to brace itself for more cold weather today as temperatures were predicted to drop as low as minus five degrees C last night and tonight.

The MET Office said: "Following recent snow with further snow showers expected in  overnight, widespread ice is expected on roads and pavements.

"The public are advised to take extra care and refer to Traffic Wales for further advice on road conditions."
