Three flood alerts, which had been issued for the Norfolk coastline following forecasted high winds and a tidal surge are 'no longer in force,' the Environment Agency have confirmed.

The Environment Agency issued eight flood alert warnings yesterday, meaning flooding is possible, across most of the coastline from Norfolk to Essex.

They also warned about the tidal estuary areas along the coast, including the Deben, Orwell and Stour.

Initial warnings were put out ahead of the high tide yesterday (Saturday, February 21) afternoon and these remained in place for the high tide due at around 1.30am this morning.

But the Environment Agency said that the warnings 'are no longer in force' for the North Norfolk Coast; King's Lynn, West Lynn and Terrington St Clements; and for the Coast from Hunstanton to north of Kings Lynn.

The high tides did not cause much disruption except for in low-lying coastal areas particularly prone to flooding during higher than usual tide events.

Four flood alerts still remain for the Anglian region, according to the Environment Agency. These are the Suffolk and Essex Coast from Felixstowe to Clacton including Orwell and Stour Estuaries; the Tidal Deben Estuary; areas near the Wash frontage from Gibraltar point to Admiralty Point and the Tidal River Witham, the Tidal River Welland and the Tidal River Nene and the Essex Coast from Clacton to St Peters Flat including the Rivers Colne and Blackwater Estuaries.
