Drivers were warned to take extra care in the fog

Kent has woken up to a thick blanket of fog today - and motorists are being warned to take extra care on the county's roads.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for fog in the county, with visability down to just 150ft in some places.

It said the worst of the fog should start to clear by about 10am, but it might linger into the afternoon.

Kent Highways urged drivers to take extra car after road surface temperatures fell below freezing overnight.

A Met Office spokesman said: "Clearing skies will allow temperatures to fall and fog to form Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. 

"Visibilities are expected to be below 100m in places, and perhaps lower than 50m locally. 

"The poorest visibility should improve by 10am, but fog may linger locally into the afternoon.

"The public should be aware of the risk of locally dense fog patches, and the potential for disruption to transport."
