An East Anglian store has said it is "business as usual", despite water pouring through its roof during the floods that hit the region this weekend.

Staff at the Dunelm Mill shop in Lowestoft have had to cordon off one area of the shop after its roof began to leak during the extreme weather this weekend.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning yesterday for flooding, travel delays and power cuts.

It was predicted by Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest that some parts of Norfolk and Suffolk saw up to 40+ mm of water in very heavy showers yesterday afternoon.

However staff at the Suffolk shop remain undeterred.

"We're still here, we're open as usual," said a spokeswoman.

"We've had to cordon off one area of the shop for safety reasons, it just means that the area where we display our Dorma brand isn't open."
