Norfolk police urge motorists to take extra care on the roads as cold snap returns
Police are urging drivers in south Norfolk to take extra care on the roads as the snow and ice returns.
The warning comes following a number of fatal and serious collisions across the county over the weekend.
Inspector Chris Brooks, from Norfolk and Suffolk Road Policing, said: “It has been a particularly devastating weekend on the county’s roads and while we cannot make assumptions, the poor weather has seen a dramatic increase in the number of serious collisions we and our emergency services colleagues have had to deal with.
“The icy and snowy conditions are expected to continue throughout the course of the week and we are imploring motorists to slow down and drive according to the conditions.
“Black ice is a particular concern because the risk is not immediately visible. If roads are bad, we advise people to assess whether they really need to make the journey.”
