BREAKING: Weather forecast WARNING as Brits told ‘go home NOW’ before heavy snow


A county in south-west England has urged locals to head home by 3pm amid a Met Office amber warning for a whiteout.

The heavy snow threatens to dump up to 10cm of snow in parts this evening as it sweeps across the whole country.

Daily Star Online revealed this morning where the snow is set to fall – with most parts seeing 2-4cm of wintry showers.

And Devon County Council has just urged people to take action in a statement on Twitter.

It said: “An amber warning has been issue by @metoffice. The latest travel advice is to get home by 1500 if travelling the affected parts of rural Devon.”

Warning that the snow could be fatal, the council added: “Despite our efforts, winter weather can still make roads treacherous.

“With over 90 per cent of all crashes attributed to human error the real key to driving in winter is to drive with due care for the conditions. Never assume a road has been salted.”

Devon and Cornwall police commissioner Alison Hernandez added: “Stay safe everyone and please do not travel unless essential!”
