Snow in Norfolk leads to hazardous driving conditions

More wintry showers have been forecast for Norfolk as overnight snowfall meant drivers faced icy roads.

Norfolk Police said there had been three collisions where people were injured and about 10 minor crashes.

The county's fire service said they had seen a considerable increase in the number of call-outs to road collisions.

Outbreaks of sleet or snow are expected later with further warnings of icy roads. On Wednesday night traffic across the county was slow moving.

Both Norfolk Fire Service and Norfolk Police said motorists seemed to be heeding safety advice and urged them to continue to do so.

Motorists were travelling slowly on the ice, causing heavy congestion on roads such as the A47.

On the county's minor ungritted roads conditions were even worse.
