Road chiefs in Kent have issued an ice alert to motorists today as temperatures look set to plunge.

Drivers have been warned that icy patches could pose a danger on the roads tomorrow morning.

Gritters are due to be out on the county's main roads but some surfaces will remain untreated.

It comes as snowflakes fell in Whitstable and Canterbury this afternoon.

The Met Office has also issued a severe weather warning for the county, warning residents to "be prepared".

A spokesman for Kent Highway Services said: "Road surface temperatures in Kent are expected to fall below freezing point this afternoon until tomorrow morning."

"In anticipation of this the main roads throughout Kent will be treated to help prevent the formation of ice and frost on road surfaces tomorrow morning."
