Norfolk has woken up to frosty and icy roads this morning.

Norfolk has woken up to frosty and icy roads this morning, with Norfolk Police and East of England Ambulance urging drivers to be extra careful.

The police have said it may be icy on some rural roads while the ambulance service has tweeted: “It’s a bitterly cold start this morning, so please be extra careful on the roads and on the icy paths.

“Take the extra few minutes before setting off to ensure your windscreen is fully clear.”

There is no official weather warning from the Met Office but many roads and pathways are covered with ice.

Temperatures are currently hovering around 1C across the county.

Meanwhile, Norfolk police have said there are tailbacks on the A11 due to a broken-down vehicle.

Motorists heading south from Norwich on the road toward Wymondham are facing delays of up to twenty minutes.

Police have said the vehicle will be recovered at 8:00am.
