After recent rain-filled days, which saw flooding in parts of Norfolk and Suffolk, forecasters have said brighter weather is on the way.

Forecasters at University of East Anglia-based Weatherquest said, while the next couple of days would feel more like March than June, sunnier weather would return as the week goes on.

Friday saw floods in coastal areas such as Gorleston and Lowestoft, amid a severe weather warning from the Met Office.

There was further rain on Saturday and overnight into Sunday morning, and meteorologist Adam Dury, from Weatherquest, said some parts of Norfolk would see more today.

He said: "Today will be pretty cloudy on and off, with some light rain. It will stay on the cool side and like a typical March day, rather than June.

"Tomorrow, at least for the south of Norfolk, it will stay cloudy, with the odd bit of rain.
