It comes as much of the county is still shivering in temperatures of -3 to -1 and with snow and ice evident across Kent.

Motorists are still being warned to beware of icy conditions overnight tonight, with gritters being deployed across the county.

But, tomorrow temperatures could rise to above freezing, with a prediction of a positively balmy 10C by Monday in comparison.

Monday will see rain showers in the north west with drier conditions in central and eastern parts."
