Firefighters assisted with two incidents of flooding in Norfolk over the weekend.

On Sunday evening an officer from Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service gave advice to residents at Longfields, Swaffham, after a public footpath flooded with water going into the garden of a neighbouring home.

A pump from Dereham also attended flooding at Dereham Road, Whinburgh, and helped to remove water from the road.
