Information on how Suffolk is dealing with heavy snow

Suffolk County Council's gritting teams are out again today treating the county's A and B roads followed by bus and commuter routes.

It follows an night of gritting A roads.

Overnight, snow fall was heaviest in western and central parts of Suffolk, with significant drifting in exposed areas, so the county council has mobilised local farmers to help clear roads in rural areas.

The county has some further resources moving into larger town centres.

All of Suffolk's main A roads remain passable but motorists are being warned to proceed with care.

Suffolk police said there were 67 incidents reported on roads overnight between 10pm last night and 10am today but none were serious and were mainly minor shunts with no reported injuries as vehicles slid off road

The county council has opened all 11 household waste recycling centres from 11am today.
