A west Norfolk road which is prone to flooding is set to be closed tonight due to high tide predictions.
The A1101 Welney Wash Road will be closed later today and drivers are advised to not use the route after dusk.
The closure follows an earlier flood alert which was issued on Thursday for the Hundred Foot Washes area in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.
Heavy rainfall earlier this week has caused river levels to rise at the Causeway at Sutton Gault, with 15cm of water currently on the road.
River levels are expected to remain high over the next few days and the situation is been closely monitored by the Environment Agency Anglia and Norfolk County Council.
