Norfolk County Council said the A1101 Welney Wash is likely to stay closed for at least a week after flooding submerged the road.

Aerial photographer Terry Harris captured the flooding at its worst, close to the Norfolk and Cambridgeshire border.

Around the county, heavy downpours led Norfolk Constabulary to issue warnings over surface waters.

The county council said highways teams took to the roads with pumps and tankers to clear excess water.
