STORM Caroline is set to smash into Britain overnight sparking fears of "flying debris" as 90mph gales and snow storms are predicted to batter the UK. "Snow showers will turn increasingly frequent and heavy across northern Scotland during the evening".

The forecaster continued: "Thursday night will be bitterly cold and windy, with clear spells and wintry showers of hail, sleet and snow, most frequent in Ulster, Connacht and in west Munster, but in other areas also".

The snow-ice warning of Ireland will last well into Thursday afternoon and will be renewed briefly come nightfall until Friday at 4pm.

Snow showers will affect northern Scotland later on Thursday, with the risk extending across more of Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and western parts of England on Friday. "Some injuries from slips and falls on icy and snowy surfaces".
