Much of Suffolk and North East Essex was waking up to a dusting of early morning frost as winter started to take its grip ahead of the predicted snow tomorrow.

Many drivers were having to scrape their windscreens before setting off with the temperatures due to rise to 2 degrees during the day.

Gritters were out spreading the roads and forecasters said it will stay very cold throughout today with some inland places only just rising above freezing.

It will be sunny and largely dry for most with light or moderate winds inland, but brisk winds near coasts.

Tonight it will turn dry and clear and at first with a widespread frost.
