A warning has been issued to drivers and pedestrians as ice sets in due to the continued cold weather.

Sheffield Council's Streets Ahead team urged people to take care the roads.

A spokesman said: "We cannot guarantee treated roads will be completely ice free. When snow or ice is forecast always make sure you drive to the road conditions."
