Norfolk Police are urging communities to stay safe, and stay off the roads if they can, as more snow arrived overnight.
Emergency services and local agencies are continuing to work together to help people who have to make essential journeys under the Government’s lockdown rules, to get across the county safely.
As storm Darcy brings more snow, freezing temperatures and blizzard-like conditions, many roads fell victim to snowdrifts and blockages overnight.
Norfolk Police have attended a number of minor road traffic collisions, and assisted with blocked roads as a result of the weather, and continue to work with partners and local agencies throughout the days and nights, as the storm continues.
Stuart Ruff, Chief Fire Officer, said: “We are seeing the impact of the severe bad weather across many parts of the county. Some of our crews have been out this morning, helping to clear access roads so that the four vaccination centres can open in the Great Yarmouth area.
“If you do need to make an essential journey, please be mindful of the conditions, especially if you’re driving. The difficult weather increases the risk to everyone and the likelihood that our crews will be required to assist.”
“With more snow predicted over the coming days, our message remains the same – if you don’t have to make that essential journey just yet, don’t do it!”
