Police have urged motorists to drive slowly with strong winds and widespread snow expected in Norfolk on Sunday.

Power cuts have also hit customers across the county.

Amber weather warnings of snow, which suggest there could be widespread travel disruption and possible power cuts in parts of London, the east and south-east of England, have been issued by the Met Office for today and Monday morning.

The Met Office issued weather warnings for the East of England this weekend.

On Friday, Norfolk superintendent Nathan Clark asked motorists to reduce the number of journeys they make where possible.

He said: "By reducing the number of journeys, we reduce the chance to coming into contact with others through choice or by chance, such as being involved in a collision and needing the help of emergency services.

"Any journey we make under current lockdown rules should be for an essential purpose, such as food shopping or caring for a vulnerable friend or relative. "With these weather warnings in place we would ask people to give extra thought before leaving home and ask yourself ‘can my journey wait’?”
