Dangerous black ice has caused two car accidents in a rural Suffolk village, after temperatures plunged to below freezing overnight.

Police were called to two separate single-vehicle crashes in The Street, Cavenham, at 7.45am.

A police spokesman confirmed no-one involved suffered any serious injuries.

The road remained partly blocked while recovery was awaited for one of the vehicles, but has since been cleared.

A yellow weather warning for ice was issued by the Met Office yesterday, which expired at 11am today.
