Police and Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service personnel have attended to two accident scenes as icy conditions forecast for the county are expected to make for dangerous driving conditions.

In the first, police and fire and rescue appliances from Stalham and Wroxham attended a road traffic collision on Barton Road in Smallburgh where a car had rolled.

The call came in just after 8.30pm and the crews manually assisted in releasing a person from the vehicle and making the surrounding area safe.

No injuries were reported.

In the second incident, which was reported at 8.41pm, an appliance from Watton assisted police at the scene of a road traffic collision on North Pickenham Road in Swaffham.

It was not clear at the time of writing if any injuries were reported.

A Norfolk police spokesman cautioned motorists to drive carefully as temperatures were expected to drop below freezing overnight.

“This is going to be one of the coldest nights of the year and drivers should take care on the roads and made sure their vehicles are properly de-iced.”
