Rail operator Greater Anglia said services between Norwich and Great Yarmouth had returned to normal.

Services between Norwich and Lowestoft continue to be suspended as a result of flood damage.

A spokesman for the rail operator said First Norfolk Buses will pass valid Greater Anglia ticket holders, on bus routes X1 and X2, which serve routes Norwich to Great Yarmouth/Lowestoft.

A number of roads are still closed in Norfolk. In west Norfolk, the bridge at Wiggenhall St Germans is closed due to cracking. The bridge at Purfleet Place, King’s Lynn is to reopen after its structure was checked and King Street should be open by midday.

In north Norfolk, the following roads are closed: Mill Common Road, Walcott Road, Keswick Road, Bacton Road, at the Lighthouse Inn, Walcott, Beach Road, at Cley, up towards Salthouse.

And at The Poacher’s Pocket Pub, on the Bacton Road, caravans which were in the car parked have floated into the road, blocking the road all the way to Walcott Road.

Reports have also been received that Mundesley Cliff Vale Road car park has been washed into the sea. In Wells-next-Sea, the road from Northfield Avenue to East Quay is also blocked.

The A143 Beccles Road in Haddiscoe is partially blocked because of flooding.

The A12 is still closed at Blythburgh in Suffolk after flooding.
