With a cold snap and possible wintry showers forecast to reach the Isle of Wight, Islanders are being reminded of ‘key advice’.

For the south east of England, including the Isle of Wight, the Met Office is indicating a 90 per cent probability of severe cold weather from up until Friday 1 February in parts of England.

As reported by Isle of Wight Radio, there is also a chance that the Isle of Wight will see ice and snow today (Tuesday) and tomorrow (Wednesday).

The Isle of Wight Council is warning that this wintry weather may increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services.

The local authority’s advice ranges from keeping your home warm to checking on your neighbours and stocking up on tinned and frozen food.

People are also being encouraged to help the homeless during this cold weather by approaching either the Isle of Wight Council’s housing team.
