Fire crews were called out to tackle a spate of floods across the county during a night of torrential rain.

According to the University of East Anglia's Weatherquest service, there could be more miserable weather to come.

Forecaster Phil Garner said: “This front has started to move off the south of the county, and although there is still an area of low pressure behind it, we have probably seen the worst. Tomorrow will be cloudy with thundery showers and Sunday should be fine and dry.

“But unfortunately that is not the return of the summery weather - by Monday a new area of low pressure will have moved across and there will be more showers.”

The Environment Agency said there were no flood warnings in place in Norfolk but advised homeowners to keep checking their website at www.environmentagency.gov.uk or the Floodline on 0845 988 1188.

Heavy rain across the UK could cause flash flooding in other areas during the weekend, with the bad weather most likely to hit northern England, the Midlands and central Wales. The Met Office has issued heavy rain warnings for Northern Ireland, Wales, north west England, Yorkshire and Humber, and the West and East Midlands.
