The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents has urged motorists to beware on the roads, and to drive to the conditions.

Kevin Clinton, RoSPA's head of road safety, said: "The ability to see and to hear clearly is vital for drivers.
"Drivers should follow weather forecasts and general advice about driving conditions, and should avoid driving in fog unless absolutely necessary.
"Reduce your speed and keep your distance from the vehicle in front. You should always be able to stop in the distance you can see in front of you. If the fog closes in, lose more speed.
