Towns and villages across Suffolk have reported wintry showers after a yellow weather warning was put in place for the region.

Stansted Airport in Essex was the first to see snow around 5am today, with the Met Office yellow weather warning for snow and ice still in place for the east of England.

So far the snow has not caused any disruption and is not expected to settle in most parts of the county.

So far, residents in Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich Sudbury, Haverhill, Stowmarket and Wetherden have reported experiencing flurries of sleet and snow.

Mr Dury added temperatures through the morning are not expected to rise above 2C, but will later reach highs of 6-7C in the afternoon.
