Mr Passmore was addressing Suffolk County Council’s Police and Crime Panel on Friday where he said people had done a “fantastic job” during the ‘Beast from the East’ in tackling the weather and responding to emergencies.

“I think the council did a fantastic job – from what I have seen and heard that was good,” he said.

“I think the voluntary sector did a fantastic job.”

It is understood a report is being prepared to review the response of the public sector, such as gritting teams, and emergency services in dealing with the adverse weather, which is likely to be published in time for any lessons to be learnt before the winter.

Mr Passmore added that there was “always room for improvement”.
