Kent's on snow alert as the temperatures are set to plummet and gritters prepare for the white stuff.

The county is due to be in the grip of a snowstorm by the end of the weekend or early next week, according to weather experts.

Mark Wilson, forecaster for the Met Office said: "There's high confidence that conditions will turn colder over the next few days.

"In terms of snowfall there's more uncertainty, but there's a risk of Kent seeing snow by Monday.

"On Monday there's a risk of a band of sleet and snow pushing from the north west and reaching the Kent area - from Monday night into Tuesday.

"Temperatures reaching no more than two or three degrees - a very cold day especially in the wind."
