In a post on social media, TVP Roads policing said: "It’s another frosty morning across the Thames Valley.

"Please slow down and take extra care on the roads as not all routes are treated. Leave extra time for your journey."

According to the Highway Code, before setting off, drivers should clear frost, ice and snow from their vehicle before starting their journeys.

If you find yourself in icy conditions, you should drive at a slow speed and in the highest gear possible, and go especially slowly on bends.

To check if your vehicle has grip on the road, choose a safe place to brake gently. If the steering feels unresponsive, this could indicate ice or that your vehicle is losing its grip on the road.
