A new weather warning has been issued for ice across Norfolk and Waveney.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for much of the UK, including parts of East Anglia, from 4pm today until 11am tomorrow.

The warning says ice is expected to form from late this afternoon, lasting overnight into tomorrow morning.

“There will probably be icy stretches on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths with some injuries possible from slips and falls,” a spokesman said.

Norfolk Council has said it will be gritting roads from 2pm as temperatures are due to fall to around or below freezing by early evening.

It comes after a night of freezing conditions which saw temperatures dip to -2.4C at Santon Downham and -1.7C in Marham. The average for this time of year is 8C.

Police saw a spike in crashes on the roads due to the ice with officers in Norfolk called to 48 incidents on Tuesday morning.

Coastal areas including Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft and between Cromer and Mundesley also experienced thunder and lightning because of the wintery weather conditions.
