MOTORISTS are being urged to only make important journeys today, after heavy snowfall hit the county for the second time in less than a week.

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.

The train operator First Capital Connect says services between Peterborough and London King's Cross may be delayed by up to 90 minutes because of heavy snow, and a broken down train near Stevenage in Hertfordshire.

Heavy snow in the Downham Market area has also left services between Ely and King's Lynn subject to alterations and cancellations.
