Drivers have been urged to take extra care on Norfolk's roads this morning, after plunging temperatures overnight left icy patches across the county.

A Met Office yellow warning has been in place since 4am this morning and will remain in place until 10am.

They said the icy patches could cause difficult driving conditions on untreated roads and slippery conditions on pavements.

A narrow band of mainly light rain, sleet and some snow is has been moving across southeastern parts of England.

The Met Office said amounts of snow are likely to be 'trivial', but any rain falling onto already sub-zero surfaces could lead to ice developing in places, particularly on untreated roads and pavements.
