Flood wardens remain on standby in Potter Heigham as the Environment Agency (EA) has issued 17 flood alerts and warnings across the county.

Following the weekend's torrential downpour - with more wet weather on the way - three red flood warnings have been issued in Norfolk, with the EA advising people to move vehicles to higher ground and important items upstairs.

In Potter Heigham, senior flood warden Paul Rice said the village's main concern is about saturated marshes, high water levels in dykes and the chance of water overtopping.

"Hopefully this will not reach those levels."

The flood team remain on watch, monitoring the rivers and watercourses.

The EA has put the village on alert, saying flooding is possible and people ought to be prepared. The agency is not currently expecting the situation to escalate.

At the end of last year, Potter Heigham suffered longstanding water in nearby fields and disruption to nearby businesses - including Lathams and Herbert Woods - due to the raised flood barrier.
