Fenland woke up to a blanket of snow - in some places several inches - again and has left some roads impassable.
If your journey is vital, police are urging drivers to take extra care, reduce speed and ensure you leave plenty of space between yourself and the vehicle in front.
A police spokeswoman said that, this morning, there have been several minor collisions on the roads across the county. A section of the A1 in the county was reduced to one lane, and some parts of the A14 were closed.
