The region is bracing itself for wet and stormy weather this evening, with some areas already experiencing flooding.

Pictures taken by our photographer Antony Kelly show flooding in Wroxham, as the rain moves across from the western parts of the region.

The Met Office has warned that some areas may see 15-25mm of rain falling within an hour, with a risk of more than 30mm resulting in the possibility of flooding in urban areas.

Thundery showers are also expected this evening, according to the forescasters.

An officer from Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service was called to Peddars Way, Hunstanton, where they “gave advice to residents”.

Lightning causes lengthy train delays

Trains between Norwich and Sheringham are delayed by up to one hour and 20 minutes, as a result of this evening’s stormy weather.

Railway company Greater Anglia reported the line’s signalling system had been damaged after being hit by lightning.

Engineers from Network Rail are on site and working to rectify the problems, but the delays are expected to last until 10.30pm at the earliest.

Greater Anglia apologised for the delay.
