MOTORISTS are being warned to take extra care on the roads this morning after snow fell in parts of Sussex overnight.

Those living on higher ground woke up to a light covering of the white stuff on cars and roofs.

But the snow was already melting by 6am as it was replaced with light rain and drizzle.

The cold did not deter early morning walkers on Devil's Dyke who can be seen here enjoying a cup of coffee as the sun rose this morning.

Some residents raised concerns about whether homeless shelters were open.

Clare Moonan, councillor in charge of rough sleeping, said a severe weather shelter was opened on Tuesday night.

She said outreach workers went to find rough sleepers to let them know where to go for shelter.

Rough sleepers were driven to shelter, away from the cold weather, she said.

"We will continue to monitor the forecast and be ready to act as needed," she added.

Ice has also caused rail disruption and delays on some services, including between Barnham and Horsham.

Meanwhile all lanes have re-opened and traffic is easing after an overturned car was removed from the A27 eastbound between Lewes and Southerham.

Lane one was reportedly blocked.

A separate accident on the westbound side also closed one lane, but was not believed to be related.
