"Being only half way through the Winter, poor driving conditions are set to continue for another two months at least, so please drive to the conditions and stay safe."

Cold weather is expected to continue, with the Met Office issuing a warning for freezing fog and minus temperatures across Suffolk.

Long periods of fog are expected to begin on Thursday night, which is likely to lead to difficult conditions for drivers.
