An Amber weather warning has been issued for heavy snow in Newtown and the area on Sunday, with emergency services urging residents to only travel if necessary.

The more heightened warning comes after a number of accidents in the area last night due to ice and snow.

The A483 at Abermule was nearly closed last night due to the snow and ice conditions, with police urging people to stay clear of the road.

Today, forecasters said heavy snow was likely to hit Montgomeryshire and issued the Amber warning, which is a more severe level than the Yellow warning issued on Friday.

Newtown's Park Run has been cancelled today due to the conditions.

Dyfed Powys Police has urged people to stay at home during the conditions and not to travel unless necessary.

Meanwhile, charities have been urging residents to keep an eye on elderly and vulnerable neighbours and family during the cold conditions.
