The pair also braved the freezing temperatures and drifting snow on Thursday night in an effort to clear the which had been impassable during the day.

Open fields run alongside that stretch of the A140 which meant snow had been drifting in and causing feet of snow to build up.
Mr Moore and Robert Alexander have also joined the effort and are now passing through the surrounding villages and rural roads in the Pulhams, Starston and Harleston area.
Although passable people should drive with care.
