Schools are closed and bin collections have been cancelled across West Norfolk.

The Met Office issued an amber weather warning for the region from the early hours of the morning until 10am.

The Met Office said: “Heavy snow showers are expected overnight and during Wednesday morning.

“Travel delays on roads are very likely, with snow perhaps leading to some stranded vehicles and passengers; delays or cancellations to rail and air travel are also likely.

“Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may also occur.”

Norfolk Police have warned not to travel unless you have to.

The Borough Council said bin collections have been cancelled today due to the conditions.

Meanwhile there has been disruption on the roads.

YLP’s Jamie Read travelled from Hunstanton to King’s Lynn this morning and said: “A normal half an hour journey took nearly two hours.

“Traffic on the bypass was crawling and I saw a lorry stuck at the side of the roundabout in Hunstanton.”

There have been a number of changes to bus routes.

Lynx Bus said: “There are currently delays on all services, the buses are running so will get to you eventually.”
