    MOD NOTE

    This is a busy thread and as a result the Mod Team will be taking a zero Tolerance approach to trolling, flaming and personal abuse.

    Don’t say you weren’t warned!!

    And please don’t feed Trolls- report & let the Mod team deal with Troublesome Posters rather than further derailing threads.

    Thanks

    Frost and ice will be widespread Saturday and Sunday nights with lows of -1 to -5c both nights. Locally lower where snow has settled.
