That was the cry today of hundreds of people trapped in vehicles as arctic weather gripped East Anglia.

Dozens of motorists were trapped on the M11 at Duxford in Cambridgeshire overnight.

And more – including 54 children on a schoolbus – were stranded in a snowdrift between Cambridge and Haverhill.

Rescuers were trying desperately to free the vehicles – the coach was today rapidly running out of fuel needed to keep its heating working.

Elsewhere in the region, an aircraft overshot the runway at Norwich Airport – although no one was injured.
