Travel is likely to remain affected as snow continued to fall in the East of England, with the Met Office warning of more possible disruption to come.

Some Greater Anglia trains between Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Essex and London were cancelled on Monday and a 60mph speed restriction put in place.

Flight delays were reported at Luton, Stansted and Norwich airports.

An amber snow warning will remain in place across East Anglia, the Met Office said.

It added snowfall could reach five to 10cm (2in-4in) in places.

The freezing temperatures on top of snow have caused problems on the rail line near Stowmarket in Suffolk.

Greater Anglia said it would be working with an emergency team from Network Rail to help clear the line in time for commuter traffic on Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, the speed restriction on trains remains in place and any decision on whether to remove it will be made once the extent of any overnight snow and ice becomes more clear.
