National Highways has issued a warning to drivers as ice and snow hits Suffolk.

The alert has been issued after the Met Office introduced a 'severe weather alert' for the county.

A yellow warning for snow and ice between midnight and 7am on Thursday is also in place.

Following this, National Highways is urging road users to check ahead and plan for disruption to their journeys.

What to expect:

  • Possible travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel
  • Some rural communities could become temporarily cut off
  • There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected
  • A chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces
  • A chance that untreated pavements and cycle paths become impassable
