A host of schools are closed and country roads have become treacherous after the winter freeze tightened its grip on north Norfolk.

The majority of main roads are passable in the district but North Walsham, Stalham, Aylsham, Sheringham and Holt were hit by heavy snowfall yesterday afternoon, which remains in those areas today.

Fields and village homes are also covered in thick snow and cars are travelling slowly along the majority of the district’s roads.

A signalling problem is causing disruption between Sheringham and Norwich train line and there are delays of up to 30 minutes.

Cromer has escaped heavy snowfall, compared with the rest of north Norfolk.
