A man had to be rescued from a car by emergency services after it crashed in icy conditions in Norfolk.
Firefighters cut free the driver from Attleborough trapped for over an hour in icy temperatures when his car came off the road at Deopham on Saturday.
A sprinkling of snow overnight kept gritters busy trying to keep main roads passable as ice formed in the cold.
They will be out again on Saturday night and Sunday early hours as snow and low temperatures are predicted.
Most buses operated normal services on Saturday although First only ran on main roads.
Snow and ice are still lying in many parts of the county causing hazards for drivers as temperatures fall.
Stansted and Norwich airports operated normally but the Stansted Express train from London Liverpool Street is a bus service this weekend.
Greater Anglia, which run trains between Norwich, Cambridge, Ipswich and Colchester, will be running planned services on all routes.
"Scheduled engineering works will be taking place this weekend on some routes and customers are strongly advised to check their planned journey before setting out," said a Greater Anglia spokesman.
"Full details of engineering work can be found on the website."
First Capital Connect, which runs trains between London and Norfolk through Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire, said snow and icy weather across its network was still disrupting services.
"Please check our live train updates page before travelling and allow extra time for your journey," a spokesman said.
"We are running 'ghost trains' overnight to do all we can to keep the lines clear of snow and ice.
"We have also placed extra staff at stations to clear snow and train engineers at key locations.
"Please take care when travelling as surfaces may be slippery."
More than 300 schools closed in Norfolk on Friday after further snow hit the county.
