Parts of the region have been told to brace themselves for flooding, with a number of alerts from the Environment Agency in effect.

With more than 90 warnings in place nationwide, just one warning has been issued in Norfolk and Waveney, with those living close to the Chediston watercourse at Halesworth warned to expect flooding.

However, several, less severe alerts have also been put in place by the Environment Agency, particularly around the tidal rivers Bure, Ant and Thurne in the east of the county.
