RESIDENTS could be faced with snow and ice as falling temperatures and wintry conditions are predicted for the borough by the end of this week.

Temperatures are set to fall to around freezing and snow and sleet are expected to fall before Friday.

Residents were faced with treacherously icy conditions and sub-zero temperatures earlier this year with snowfall hitting record levels.

Rain is predicted for the weekend with the cold snap turning to thundery showers by Saturday.
