MOTORISTS are being warned to take extra care on Suffolk's roads today as high winds cause chaos.

The Highways Agency is urging drivers to stay safe as rain and spray reduce visibility on the county's roads.

The agency said drivers of high-sided vehicles, vehicles towing a trailer or caravan, and cyclists and motorcyclists, should pay extra attention to the roads today.

It also suggested drivers should plan their routes before setting off and take note of any locations that are susceptible to strong winds such as high level bridges and exposed stretches of road.
