BRECKLAND: Problems with snow and ice on the roads have affected some bin collections in Breckland.

A Breckland Council spokesman said services firm Serco had emptied the vast majority of the bins in the district but that a small number had been missed because of the road conditions.

People who have not had their bins emptied are being asked to keep them out for collection as they will be collected as soon as possible.
