The Met Office has warned of flooding in England today that could affect parts of Norfolk.

It comes following a yellow weather warning for parts of west Norfolk.

An area including King's Lynn, Downham Market, Wells-next-the-Sea and Hunstanton will be particularly affected by the bad weather on Tuesday, the forecaster says.

The forecaster has warned that the heavy and persistent rain could cause homes and businesses to flood.

Bus and train services could be affected with journey times taking longer.

Spray and flooding on roads could also extend journey times.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing team have issued a reminder to drive to the conditions, not the speed limit.

There have been reports of large pools of standing water on the A47 into Norwich-bound from Dereham.

A tree has also fallen on the A140, near Hainford due to heavy winds.
