Freezing conditions and heavy snowfall has affected Royal Mail deliveries in north Norfolk.

Several vehicles were seen in the North Walsham sorting office car park covered in snow this morning.

A Royal Mail spokeswoman Morag Turnbull said: “We apologise to customers who are experiencing delays to their deliveries in Norfolk as a result of the severe winter weather conditions there.

“A range of measures have been put in place to ensure deliveries reach people as quickly as possible. We are doing our utmost to ensure continued deliveries but it may not be possible to do so everywhere because of the weather.”

Elsewhere in the district there have been reports that Roughton Road, Cromer, from Compit Hills, Roughton, is treacherous for drivers because of compacted snow.

Throughout the day gritting lorries with snow ploughs attached have been driving through Cromer and along the A140 towards Norwich.
