Boaters using a section of the River Bure have been asked to proceed with caution for the remainder of the month due to dredging work.

The Broads Authority issued a notice saying that 'rake/agitation dredging work' would be carried out by a contractor on behalf of the authority in the Lower Bure until March 29.

'The work will be carried out at variable times, on the ebb tides between high slack water and low slack water during daylight hours,' the authority said in a notice.

'The start location is at Bure Mouth to Vauxhall Bridge, then during this time period they will be working upstream to Great Yarmouth Yacht Station.

'The vessel carrying out the work will have a slow speed and restricted manoeuvrability.

'Navigators are requested to take extra care when passing.'
