The snow has finally completed the town and village set after Cromer got its long-awaited dose last night and in the early hours today.

The coastal areas had escaped the worst of the weather, while inland there has continued to be a few inches of snow since early last week.

But the promised flurries blew in from the south at teatime across north Norfolk, made worse by strong easterly winds that caused drifting in some areas.

This morning, the carpet of white prompted the greatest number of Norfolk school closures since the cold snap began, with headteachers erring on the side of caution because of slippery roads and dangerous conditions at their sites.

Closure include:

● Antingham and Southrepps Primary

● Aylsham High

● Blakeney Primary

● Broadland High

● Bure Valley School

● Buxton Primary

● Colby Primary

● Coltishall Primary

● Corpusty Primary (opening at 10am)

● East Runton Infant

● Erpingham Primary (opening at 10.30am if possible)

● Happisburgh Primary

● Holt Primary

● John of Gaunt Infant

● Kelling Primary

● Marsham Primary

● Millfield Primary (opening at 10am)

● Mundesley Infant

● Mundesley Junior

● North Walsham High

● Overstrand The Belfry

● Reepham High

● Reepham Primary

● St Michael’s Nursery and Infant, Aylsham

● Sheringham High Academy

● Sidestrand Hall

● Stalham High

● Stalham Infant

● Stalham Junior

● Suffield Park Infant

● Sutton Infant

● Swanton Abbott Primary

● The Douglas Bader Short Stay School

● Tunstead Primary.

Bus services are running in most places, but passengers are warned to expect delays.

A spokesman for Sanders Coaches said: “We are trying to run as many of our services as possible but the following will not be running: 210 service, parts of the 33.

“All other routes are running main road only but will be severely delayed. Please take care and keep up to date on Twitter.”
