Suffolk/Essex: Warning to stay safe on roads after a spate on incidents linked to wet weather

AMBULANCE bosses are calling for people to take care on the roads following a spate of collision in the region today.

The service has received 35 emergency calls today since 1.45pm.

Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “At this time of the year, the combination of wet weather, high winds and leaves falling off trees on to the road which can make the roads slippery and the nights drawing in early on, we do see a rise in road traffic collisions on our roadways.

“Please plan out your journey and if possible please take an alternative route to avoid flooded areas as it’s not worth the risk getting stranded in rising water and risking your lives. Remember to watch your speed, leave plenty of distance for breaking.”
