POLICE have warned motorists to beware icy conditions after an “extraordinarily high” number of accidents on Cambridgeshire’s roads over the weekend.

In a four-and-a-half-hour spell on Sunday morning, officers reported more than 30 incidents caused by the sudden drop in temperatures.

The areas most affected had been in the south of the county, said inspector Jamie Rice.

He added: “The drop in temperature overnight meant many roads in the south of the county are in an icy and dangerous condition.”
