Suffolk covered in blanket of fog

Thick fog which is covering parts of Suffolk this morning is set to clear.

MUCH of Suffolk was covered in a blanket of early morning fog today as motorists struggled into work.

In Ipswich visibility was down to about 100 yards in some places while out in the rural areas it was even lower with drivers on the A140 reporting to be able to see only 50 yards in front of them.

There were even reports of some motorists driving with no lights on in Ipswich.

However, forecasters said that much of it was due to clear by 9.30 although it would hang around in the west of Sufffolk.

A spokesman for Weatherquest said: “It may remain misty for parts of the county throughout the day.

“It should clear quickest in the coastal areas but the western part of the county and Cambridgeshire will see it hanging around a while longer. Drivers will need to take extra care in these conditions especially on unlit rural roads.
