Freezing rain set to pelt England and Scotland could cause "treacherous ice" in some areas, the Met Office said.

Forecasters issued yellow weather warnings ahead of the blast following a week of blizzard-like conditions in the UK.

People have been warned pavements and roads could be dangerous with winds of up to 80mph also expected to thrash Scotland.

Large waves can also be expected for coastal areas along Northern Ireland’s east coast and the west of Scotland.

Met Office forecaster Luke Miall said Valentine’s Day will not be "particularly pleasant" for most people.

He warned freezing rain and ice combined with strong winds will make the air seem "bitterly cold."

Mr Miall said: "It's going to be a bitterly cold day. Certainly where you've got freezing rain and ice, combined with those strong winds."
