Emergency services have been called out to a number of flooding incidents across north Suffolk today.
Fire crews from Lowestoft South and Beccles rescued occupants of a vehicle in flood water in Weston, near Beccles, this morning.
The B1062 in Barsham near Beccles is flooded near to the Clarke’s Lane junction. Police were at the scene earlier warning drivers to take care and a recovery truck was towing a car out of the water.
The A144 between Bungay and Ilketshall St Lawrence is flooded, although many drivers have been able to get through the water.
The A145 at Brampton close to the church is also flooded, with only large vehicles risking driving through it.
A flood warning is still in place for Halesworth, although the river level has now dropped and the underpass at Saxons Way on the A144 is now passable.
Home owners are still being advised to keep an eye on the weather, as heavy rainfall tonight could see the river rise once again.
A centre is being set up at Halesworth Rifle Hall for people that may be affected by the flooding as a precaution.
