This is the moment a car lost control and crashed on the A47 as the Beast from the East weather front swept the region.

The footage, captured by another driver on February 27 this year, shows a red car spin off the carriageway and into a barrier.

It was one of several crashes which occurred last week as heavy snow and freezing temperatures gripped the county.

In the video, the driver can be seen braking as the car loses traction on the road. It then appears to hit barrier.
