The A140 between Long Stratton and the Pulham roundabout has been impassable for most of the day due to drifting snow.

Police said they are on the scene and waiting for a snow plough to come and clear the road.

In the meantime farmers and nearby businesses have stepped in to try and clear a path - but drivers are still being warned to avoid the area for fear of getting stuck.

South Norfolk policing inspector Jason Selvarajah Tweeted at around 1.45pm on Thursday: 'A140 between #LongStratton and #Pulham roundabout still impassable due to drifting snow. Police on scene awaiting arrival of snow plough to clear the road.
