Norfolk is waking up to a blanket of fog after the coldest night of the year so far.
A Met Office weather warning issued on Wednesday told the region to brace for ice and freezing fog.
Overnight temperatures in the east dipped as low as -8C in rural areas – just a few degrees shy of the country's coldest temperature, -11C, recorded in Aberdeenshire.
The ice and fog warning is valid until 11am on Thursday.
Motorists have been cautioned to watch out for ice on untreated roads and to expect slower journey times, with possible delays to bus and train services and a chance of flight delays or cancellations.

The Met Office says the weather conditions are 'likely to bring travel disruption over parts of north and east Scotland and England'.
Rain and snow are expected to move into the UK from the southwest from Thursday and through Friday with icy patches forming, but forecasters say snow amounts will 'vary markedly' across England and Wales.
Dan Holley, of Norwich-based Weatherquest, said the approaching weather system was looking 'quite weak' with any snow accumulations 'generally small and insignificant'.
