A flood alert has been issued as heavy rainfall and high tides are causing high water levels.

The environment agency has issued a flood alert for the tidal Rivers Bure, Ant and Thurne.

They issued the warning on Sunday November, 26 to the eastern regions of Norfolk.

Flooding is expected across the Norfolk Broads with a warning in place around Potter Heigham, Wroxham boat yards and Ferry Road in Horning.

The agency is urging people to take care on waterside roads and footpaths and not to put themselves in unnecessary danger.

The flood warning comes as high tides in Great Yarmouth have restricted freshwater flow out of the Broads and leading to higher water levels.

This comes after warnings were issued for the same region last week for a similar issue (Wednesday, November 22).

The Environment Agency is set to update the warnings in the coming day.
