As the snow continues to fall across the UK, car insurance customers have been urged to take precautions and not abandon their cars in the bad weather.

Kent Police have warned that cars left on the roadside in the snow risk being impounded if they are causing an obstruction, potentially landing the driver with a heavy bill for recovery.

In order to prevent this from happening, car insurance customers were advised to check their vehicles before setting off, including taking the time to de-mist and de-ice their windows and lights.

Meanwhile, the Met Office has cautioned drivers that the snow and icy conditions are likely to continue to affect the UK throughout the coming week, particularly in northern and eastern Scotland and eastern England.

"With no sign in our extended outlook of the icy weather easing its grip, the public are advised to stay up to date with the forecast to make sure they have the latest information," said Met Office chief forecaster Tony Waters.
