Roads and rails across Suffolk and Essex are said to be clear after Storm Ciara caused major travel disruption in both counties.
Bringing winds of up to 70mph on Sunday, February 9, the storm caused the closure of the Orwell Bridge for more than 12 hours, while fallen trees in both counties further fuelled the travel nightmares.
On the roads, a spokesman for Suffolk police said traffic has been running smoothly this morning, with the constabulary currently not attending any reports of trees in the roads.
It is a similar story for Greater Anglia train services, with no reported disruptions on any lines.
A spokesman for the rail franchise said: "We are expecting to run a normal service on all routes today, following disruption caused by Storm Ciara yesterday.

Highways England has confirmed it will continue to monitor the Orwell Bridge for the rest of the day.
