A van overturned in a ditch, and a car hit a sign on a roundabout in north Norfolk this afternoon as icy, sleety conditions continued to make driving hazardous.

Emergency services were called to the roundabout on Thornage Road, Holt, shortly after 12.30pm. The couple in the car were not injured.

At about 3pm police, fire and ambulance crews also went to the scene of a van in a ditch on the A140 at Aylsham, near the turn to Banningham. The male driver was not hurt.

A police spokesman warned drivers that conditions were treacherous with HGVs getting stuck on Letheringsett Hill. There was also congestion on the B1110 at Thornage.

  • Only a few weeks ago NCC were boasting that they wouldn't get caught out this year and that they have mountains of gritsand ready to use. I suggest they start using it.

  • 2 winters ago I pulled a dozen vehicles UP Letheringsett hill with my Land Rover Defender. Unfortunately, due to the green ecomentalists, it meant my Defender cost too much to run, so it had to be sold. I won't be recovering anyone this winter. Sorry. Blame the greens who know nothing about the countryside.

  • The road conditions across much of North Norfolk were appalling but did notice that many of the bin lorries were still making their way home at gone four O'clock as I approached Holt from Cromer. They have done a good job today, thank you.
