The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for ice across Devon, from 1900 hours on Monday 19 March until 0900 hours on Tuesday 20 March.

Across Torbay, sub-zero temperatures are forecast and residents need to be vigilant for ice on roads and pavements.

TOR2 currently has gritters out on non-primary roads and will be gritting all major routes from 0230 hours with inspectors checking for hazards. Our Highways Team is advising not to travel overnight unless it is absolutely essential.

Following an inspection at Livermead Beach, the access steps have been temporarily closed due to damage occurred following the recent weather incidents. Contractors are currently on site assessing the damage and undertaking necessary repairs.

Lower Union Lane Car Park and Union Square lower entrance have now reopened. There is currently a team out with grit and shovels working on all car park entrances and exits and we expect them to be all open by tomorrow but will provide an update if this changes.

Torbay Council will be business as usual from Tuesday 20 March. Staff should continue to assess their personal circumstances and whether they are able to safely make it into work.

There are no flood warnings in place for the Torbay coastline. The next High Tide is at 1950 (4.8m). North Easterly winds are forecast but are dropping in strength (approx 25mph) and will turn northerly by tomorrow morning.

Following this recent spate of adverse weather, Torbay Council will enter into a recovery phase. Part of this process will be to assess any further damage that has occurred across the Bay.
