A road in west Norfolk has remained closed for a 73rd day due to it being submerged under floodwater.

The A1101 Welney Wash near Downham Market is under 3.5 feet of water as the river levels continue to creep up.

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

Several vehicles have still attempted the crossing - earlier this month emergency services had to be called to help a lorry that got stuck in the flood water.

A spokesman for the volunteer group Welney Flood Watch said: "The road is still closed and the barriers are fully across, FIND ANOTHER ROUTE

"Levels further upstream to Earith are showing a rise in again so I am afraid we are not going to see much change at Welney yet."

It comes as the Environment Agency issued two flood warnings and nine alerts as the county continues to be on track to have the wettest February since records began.
