More sandbags are on the way for a community in Norfolk that has been ravaged by floods.

Breckland Council has said it will be delivering extra sandbags for households in Attleborough to help protect against the impact of Storm Ciaran. 

It follows a heated emergency meeting on Monday night where locals voiced their frustrations after suffering the worst flooding for decades.

A number of people highlighted they had struggled to get sandbags before the water breached their homes during the recent Storm Babet and have since had continued problems as they made efforts to protect their properties.

Breckland Council has also said it has officers on site investigating culverts following concerns they remained blocked and could cause further flooding.

Following the public meeting held in Attleborough last night, Breckland Council will be delivering extra sandbags today. We also have officers on site with Serco colleagues investigating blocked culverts and our Building Control team are speaking with developers on Norwich Road.

Members of its building control team are also meeting with The Hill Group, which is responsible for the Gables development on Norwich Road.

It comes amid increasing speculation that the housing scheme may have contributed to the flooding as it is being built on land known to be a floodplain.
