“Some roads and railways are likely to be affected with longer journey times by road, bus and train services. Some icy patches are likely to develop on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.”

Forecasters at Weatherquest, which is based in Norwich, said there would be scattered wintry showers across the south of the East Anglia region this morning with the risk of ice on untreated surfaces.
