A fire service spokesperson said: “We would urge drivers to take extra care on the roads at the moment.
“On some of the rural roads in East Cambridgeshire especially there appears to be a lot of mud, making driving conditions sometimes difficult, particularly in the morning.
“It’s also worth reminding motorists to properly clear their windscreens before they set off on their journeys.”
