The Met Office has extended its yellow weather warning for snow and ice further westwards to cover all parts of the Anglia region.

The warning is in force until 10am on Tuesday 3 February 2015.

Snow has been reported on Monday evening in Norfolk, Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire.

The Met Office says: "Showers of sleet and snow will affect the area overnight and for a while on Tuesday morning, bringing local accumulations of 1-2 cm, perhaps around 5 cm for the North York Moors. There is also a a risk of ice on untreated surfaces. The public should be aware of locally tricky driving conditions."

"A northerly flow will bring an air mass of arctic origin over the area. Showers will fall as snow inland and over hills, though may remain as rain or sleet near coasts, where the risk of ice may be higher."

All five men jailed for total of over 17 years.

Five men have been jailed for a total of just over 17 and half years today for a series of phone frauds in which they posed as police officers to trick their victims out of thousands of pounds.

The group stole more than £40,000 after they tricked 11 people into handing over bank cards and PIN numbers. Some 1200 cold calls to members of the public had been made by the gang.

One of their victims, an elderly woman in Hertfordshire, lost more than £20,000 over the course of 30 days when members of the group kept up the pretence and phoned her every day asking for more money.

In all the offences they posed as police officers or bank staff and told their victims that their bank accounts had been infiltrated by thieves.

They usually claimed to be from the Metropolitan Police and used the names DC Lescott, DC, DS or DI Rogers or DI Maguire.
