Breckland Police sent a warning to motorists over social media on Tuesday after a car flipped on its side in Dereham.

Police said the driver of the car had a ‘lucky escape’ and urged others to take care when driving on icy roads.

Temperatures fell to -1C in Dereham causing treacherous conditions on a number of roads. The Met Office also issued a yellow warning for freezing fog across the county.

Since the beginning of December cold weather has caused challenging driving conditions for drivers in Norfolk and resulted in a number of road traffic accidents.

The biggest impact was on December 12 when temperatures fell to -3C in some areas. Police responded to 45 road accidents across county that morning, 16 of which saw people injured.

The Met Office has said that weather conditions are forecast to improve this week with temperatures staying somewhere between 5C and 10C.
