Police get asked the odd bizarre thing when thy’re out on patrol.

Officers in King’s Lynn were flabbergasted when a driver asked them if they could try drifting on a frozen car park.

One tweeted: “There’s a simple answer to that, no!”

Earlier, Norfolk traffic cop Jon Parker said: “With respect to the current weather conditions, here’s my driving advice: Don’t. It’s horrible out there.”

As conditions worsened, Norfolk police said drivers should only get behind the wheel if it was absolutely necessary.

Supt Chris Harvey said: “This weather is likely to be here for the next 24hrs at least. Please think about how you are going to get around the county and if it is truly necessary.”
