Further alerts and warnings have been issued for Norfolk as properties are now at risk of flooding. 

The Environment Agency warned "possible" flooding could affect areas around the Norfolk Broads last night after a yellow warning for rain was issued across the county. 

The alert in place for the Rivers Yare and Waveney has now been escalated to a warning, which means that flooding is now expected and is likely to affect properties close to the banks of the two rivers.

Homes and businesses in Cantley, Brundall, Reedham, and isolated properties along the River Waveney have been told to avoid contact with, walking or driving through flood water by the Environment Agency. 

A further two alerts have also been issued for the North Norfolk coastline, covering the area from Old Hunstanton to Kelling Hard, including parts of the A149 Coast Road, Beach Road, and surrounding marshland.

People are asked to avoid the area and to monitor flood levels.
