The river banks around the quay are already badly flooded and signs have been put in place to stop people getting into danger.

In some places it is difficult to see where the river bank starts and ends because the water is so deep.

An update was issued by Suffolk Police at 3pm, warning that both Beccles Quay and Geldeston could be at risk of further flooding.

Police said the floods could affect about ten properties.

The Environment Agency issued a flood warning for the River Waveney from Ellingham Marshes to Belton, earlier today.

The Broads Authority tide tables say that the next high tide at Beccles Quay will be at 3.20am.
