SUFFOLK: Motorists are heeding warnings and driving with care on the county's ice-ridden roads this morning, it has been claimed.

Despite freezing temperatures overnight and snow showers sweeping across the county from Norfolk, no serious accidents have been reported so far today.

Louise Rosher, spokeswoman for Suffolk Police, said: “The weather conditions are still causing disruption around the county although we haven't had any significant issues on the roads.

“It appears people are exercising common sense and seem to be driving to the conditions.
