@NorfolkPolice has tweeted: “9:05am #A47 #Norwich southern bypass. Considerable standing water in both carriageways due to recent heavy downpour and thunderstorm #drivetoarrive.”

Meanwhile Dan Holley, a meteorologist at UEA-based Weatherquest, has tweeted a map showing the downpours moving towards the county earlier today.
