WEST NORFOLK: Fresh snow falls, but brings few problems
More snow fell on West Norfolk overnight, but did not bring widespread travel disruption with it, according to emergency crews and transport companies.
Although the wintry weather arrived in the borough last night, the amount of snow that fell is thought to be smaller than forecasters expected.
Norfolk Police said a short time ago that there had not been any serious accidents on the area’s roads.
Meanwhile, the Norfolk Green bus company are running a full timetable today, though they say there may be delays depending on road conditions.
They have also said that the Coasthopper service will not call at Burnham Overy Staithe because of the condition of the road between Burnham Market and Burnham Overy Staithe.
However, sporting fixtures have been hit hard by the conditions for the second successive weekend.
King’s Lynn Town’s Evostik League Division One South trip to league leaders Coalville Town was called off yesterday because of the expected fresh snowfall.
The fixtures involving Downham Town, Fakenham Town and Swaffham Town have also been postponed as part of a complete white-out of the Thurlow Nunn league programme.
But Dersingham Rovers say they are doing everything they can to make sure their home game against Reepham will go ahead as planned.
The match is scheduled to kick off at 1.30pm. Follow Lynn News sports writer Greg Plummer on Twitter @LynnNewsSport for the latest information.
