Motorists urged to take care on roads in north Suffolk
MOTORISTS leaving for work this morning were being urged to take care after heavy snowfall swept across the region over the weekend.
With the freezing conditions expected to continue throughout the week, parents were also advised to check for any closures before sending their children off to school.
So far, only a handful of schools have been closed across Suffolk - with just two schools affected across Waveney. Blundeston CEVCP School is closed with staff reporting 'no power, heating or phones.' The school is expected to reopen tomorrow (Tuesday).
Ashley School in Lowestoft is open to pupils travelling daily, but staff added it is closed to residential pupils from Lincoln.
Between 10cms to 15cms (4-6in) of snow fell across Suffolk over the weekend, with 80 incidents - none of them serious - reported to Suffolk police overnight between 10pm on Saturday and noon yesterday (Sunday).
