The big freeze was loosening its grip on north Norfolk this morning as many roads became easier to use and a host of schools opened their doors.

At the time of writing, just seven of the area’s schools were closed - compared with 25 at the same time yesterday.

Those that are closed are:

● Blakeney Primary

● Broadland High

● Corpusty Primary

● Kelling Primary

● Reepham High

● Reepham Primary

● Sheringham High Academy.

Temperatures remain well below freezing in most areas, with reports of -8C at Holt.

Many people woke to find that there had been a little more overnight snow. At Cromer, there was a sprinkling of icing sugar-like snow that was melting away quickly.

There were also reports that roads in and around North Walsham and Aylsham are particularly treacherous.

Norfolk Police warned all drivers to take great care, and advised people to leave more space between themselves and the driver in front.

-All waste, recycling and garden waste collections have resumed this morning across north Norfolk.

Collections are currently one day behind in most areas and crews will first concentrate on collections that were due to be completed on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Although collections are behind, residents are asked to continue to put their bins out for collection by 7am on their normal pick-up day.
