Roads in Norfolk have been left submerged, with one under a metre of water, after rivers across the county burst their banks. 

Welney Flood Watch reported dangerously high water levels in the area which left the A1101 flooded.

Heavy rainfall caused the River Delph to rise 20cm in just six hours leaving the road submerged under a metre of water.

Flashing warning signs have been put up further down the road warning drivers to keep away and find an alternate route.

River levels are expected to continue to rise as a period of unsettled weather and heavy rain is forecast to hit Norfolk.

This led the Environment Agency to issue the county with sweeping flood alerts as they warned more disruption is on its way.
