Snow has been falling in parts of Norfolk and Suffolk for a second weekend running as a weather warning remains in place.

The Met Office warned of ice and also some snow, with light showers reported in parts of the region early on Saturday.

Wintry weather could also extend into Sunday, according to the Met Office, but the warning only covers parts of southern England and Wales on Monday.

Norwich-based forecasters Weatherquest, said it is unlikely we will see the same level of snow experienced last Saturday – though up to a centimetre "could not be ruled out" for Sunday.

Zoe Johnson, a forecaster for Weatherquest, said: "We are expecting cold nights which could see some sleet or snow, most likely in the northern parts of the county.
