POLICE today warned motorists to take care on the roads after an overnight frosty spell.

But despite the cold snap drivers seemed to be taking heed and driving according to the conditions as there were no serious road accidents last night or early this morning.

However, a Suffolk police spokesman warned motorists: "There are still patches of black ice around with people going off the road and into a ditch. We advise people to drive carefully."

At 7.15 this morning there was a minor road crash where a car overturned on the A12 at Little Glemham, near Saxmundham.

An ambulance arrived on the scene and dealt with the driver of the vehicle who was reported to have received a small cut to the head.

Minutes later in a separate incident on the same stretch of road a vehicle spun off the road and into a ditch. It is thought that the driver was not injured in the crash.

At 8pm yesterday a car overturned on the A1071 at Hintlesham and one person was taken to Ipswich Hospital, although the extent of the injuries are not known.

Today and over the next five days sees the weather turning brighter but decidedly colder.

Showers are predicted today with the highest temperature recorded at 9 degrees centigrade.

Tomorrow the forecast for the day is clear spells with the highest temperature recorded as 6C and the lowest –4.

The weekend forecast is cold and sunny with severe frost overnight.

However despite the daytime temperature improving it is time to get out the de-icer for your cars as severe overnight frost is predicted with the lowest temperature on Saturday night at -3C and -4C on Sunday.

The temperature picks up marginally on Monday with the highest recorded as 2C but again it will be frosty overnight then with the lowest at -2C.
