A busy road remains closed after it became submerged underwater when a nearby river burst its bank. 

The A1101 Welney Wash Road near Downham Market has been flooded for a number of days with drivers being forced to find alternative routes. 

Earlier this month emergency services had to be called to help a lorry that got stuck in the flood water after attempting to cross the road. 

The parish council along with Norfolk highways have since blocked off the road preventing any vehicles from attempting passage.

A spokesman for the volunteer group Welney Flood Watch said the road is covered by 32 inches of water. 

A number of flood alerts and warnings issued by the Environment Agency remain in place across the county.

In the village, 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.

"Conditions are similar to those late last year, which saw flooded marshes for several weeks," Mr Rice said.

"Hopefully this will not reach those levels."
