VILLAGES on the Felixstowe peninsula woke this morning to a wintry world - with three inches of snow covering gardens, roads and cars in many places.

The snowfall was sporadic in the area - Felixstowe itself had about half an inch overnight and at breakfast time there was an uncomfortable fine sleet falling.

The Port of Felixstowe was closed due to the poor weather conditions on the quaysides.

Town centre roads appeared not to have been gritted overnight, with Hamilton Road and High Roads East and West a wet and slushy mess with traffic moving cautiously.

Sideroads and particularly junctions were very slippery and dangerous, with snow on top of compacted ice from the unthawed snowfall at the weekend.
