Police have again appealed to motorists to only drive if absolutely necessary.

Norfolk Police on Wednesday said the problems on the roads being caused by the Beast from the East were not over yet.

“We are still getting reports of motorists getting stuck and having to abandon their vehicles,” police said in a Tweet.

“Please drive only if absolutely necessary.”

Officers warned anyone driving home to be careful as the roads will be icy and dangerous.

“Although the snow has stopped (for the time being) the roads are still pretty hazardous, so please drive carefully and don’t make any unnecessary journeys.”

Police earlier appealed to drivers who abandoned their vehicles on the A47 or A11 to make their best efforts to recover them as “they are causing an obstruction to other drivers”.

Warnings of black ice were also issued as temperatures are expected to drop further.
