Police in Norfolk are urging people to stay off the roads unless their journey is absolutely necessary due to high winds causing chaos in the county.
Calls handlers have taken more than 300 999 calls specifically related to the strong winds since 5am this morning.
Problems from the weather are expected until around 9am this morning, with delays for those travelling and may cause country roads to be blocked further.
Suffolk Police are reminding driver to take extra time on their journeys. There are a number of fallen trees on roads across the county.
Other advice includes:
- Steer clear of sea fronts and quays. High winds will also give large waves and spray along the coasts.
- Avoid woodland, beaches and exposed headlands.
- Consider how to minimise risk to yourself, your family and your property – and be a good neighbour if you know an elderly or vulnerable person who might need some help.
- Keep yourself up-to-date with the latest information
