The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for ice across Norfolk and Suffolk.

It is in place until 11am on Saturday December 16.

Temperatures are below freezing and there are some areas of black ice.

The Met Office weather warning said: “Ice will be a hazard in places on Friday evening and Saturday morning. The extent of hazards looks like being somewhat lower than preceding days, but where wintry showers fall, or there is still patchy snowcover, icy stretches are likely on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”

Temperatures are due to increase to 5C on Saturday December 16.
