The Environment Agency has announced fresh flood alerts in Norfolk, just days after being lifted for the first time in months.

Four alerts have been issued in the region with flooding 'likely', disrupting riverside roads and paths.

The areas at risk cover a large section of the Norfolk Broads around the tidal Rivers Bure, Ant and Thurne, and the tidal River Yare from Thorpe St Andrew to Breydon Water.

Areas in south Norfolk on the tidal River Waveney from Ellingham to Breydon Water, as well as in north Norfolk on the River Burn from Southgate and Waterden to Burnham Thorpe are also at risk.

These warnings were issued just before 10am today and are expected to last for at least the next 24 hours.

It comes just a day after the alerts were removed from the Norfolk Broads for the first time in the past month.

The county has seen sweeping flood warnings over the last two months with back-to-back named storms causing dangerously high river levels.

The Broads are particularly at risk due to a tidal locking effect where high tides block the natural flow out of the rivers.
