MOTORISTS have been urged to take extra care in the coming days as temperatures are expected to fall.

The advice came from the Wrexham Rural Police team on Thursday morning.

A spokesman said: "With temperatures having started to drop (-5 is expected later in the week according to the Met Office) we are urging people to be extra careful when out and about!

"Make sure your vehicle is properly de-iced before setting off. This includes your lights.

"Don’t leave your car unattended while warming it up. Leaving keys in vehicles makes it easier for suspected thieves.

"Allow extra time for your journey and extra braking distance."


The Met Office also issued advice on Wednesday afternoon, with a spokesman explaining: "There will be widespread overnight frosts for much of the UK in the coming days and a risk of snow for some regions.

"Much colder conditions are expected to affect the UK for the rest of this week and into the weekend, with daytime temperatures rooted in single figures and overnight temperatures falling well below freezing in many places.

"With the UK sitting in cold air from Scandinavia the weather is turning much colder for the rest of this week and the start of next with daytime temperatures struggling to get above single figures and overnight temperatures staying below freezing for much of the country."
