As a result of temperatures plummeting in the region last night parts of the Mere in Diss have been covered in sheets of ice.
Ducks, gulls and pigeons can be seen standing and struggling to land and take-off on the ice.
Temperatures dropped as low as -5c in parts of Norfolk and Suffolk overnight but they were not cold enough to cause the Mere to completely ice over as is shown in the selection of achieve pictures.
During the winter of 1963 an ice rink was created on the Mere by Adrian Bloom, Chairman of Blooms Nurseries limited, and his brother Robert.
