A week-long alert has been issued for villages in north Norfolk as their flooding woes enter spring.

The Environment Agency has issued a yellow flood alert for The River Burn from Southgate and Waterden to Burnham Thorpe.

The alert comes as river levels have remained high due to groundwater flooding in this area, and with showers forecast in the coming days, the alert is set to remain until April 10.
