Low pressure gathered off the north-east Norfolk coast is spreading down into Suffolk, with further flurries expected throughout the day.

Steve Western, a forecaster from Weatherquest, said: “The snow is forecast to come south and deepen throughout the day.

“It will come right down, due south to reach Suffolk and Essex throughout the day.”

Conditions were deteriorating at the Seven Hills interchange while visibility was reduced on the Orwell Bridge this morning.

Roads were said to be treacherous in Felixstowe this morning, as side roads and pavements were packed with ice.

The town was hushed as light snow fell early this morning, while Trimley St Mary was also blanketed in the early hours.

Snow was covering both lanes of the A14 at Bury St Edmunds as well as the A14 and A12 at Nacton.
