Weather: Schools delay opening in Felixstowe
FELIXSTOWE: Temperatures fell to minus 6C at Felixstowe overnight creating a difficult journey to work for drivers this morning.
The A14 was running well but motorists were warned to watch out for a van half off the road between Seven Hills and Levington.
Sideroads in Felixstowe, Walton and the Trimleys were compacted ice and treacherous and many vehicles could be seen spinning on the spot at junctions or parked beside the road.
High Road – Walton, East and West – and Hamilton Road had all been gritted and were clear.
Pavements though were sheet ice in the town centre and very dangerous.

Schools in the town were all set to open – though some later than usual to give staff a chance to get to work.
Grange Primary, Maidstone Infants and Causton Junior were all opening at 10am, and Deben High and Orwell High at 10.30am.
