Snow is still causing disruption to a bus route in north Norfolk.

Sanders Coaches has warned the number 18 service will only run between North Walsham and Aylsham today (Thursday, February 11) due to a 4ft snowdrift which is currently blocking the road in Metton.

The number 18 school run from Aylsham High School will serve Erpingham and Aldborough.

Across the county, drivers have been warned to take extra care, after sub-zero overnight temperatures created treacherous conditions on the region's roads.

It was the coldest night in the region since the Beast from the East in February 2018, with temperatures dipping below -9C in some areas. 

As a result, Norfolk police have warned motorists, who should only be making essential journeys due to coronavirus restrictions, to be cautious.
