Emergency services were called to a series of accidents as freezing temperatures led to tricky driving conditions in parts of England.

Thousands of rail and road users were hit by travel chaos on Friday evening as more than 30mm of rain fell.

On Saturday, West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) said it was called to eight crashes within two hours as motorists struggled with black ice.

The South West and the Midlands were the areas worst-hit by rain and snow.

A WMAS spokesman said: "We have had a very, very busy morning on the roads today and are urging motorists to take care as the cold weather is likely to continue." ALSO READ: More Wild Weather on the Way for Britain
