Icy conditions may have contributed to crashes on the county's roads this morning, including two where cars overturned.
Skids and collisions in Marlingford, near Norwich airport and near Thetford may have been affected by the snow and overnight frost.
At 7.50am emergency services were called to a crash on the B1107 Brandon Road outside Thetford Golf Club, where a car had skidded and overturned.
A Norfolk police spokesman said that although the car was damaged the 35-year-old female driver was not trapped and managed to get out of the vehicle without serious injury.
