Flooding is expected across Norfolk over the next few days as heavy rainfall is forecast.

The Environment Agency has issued four flood alerts for the county today and has warned that water levels could remain high for the rest of the week. 

The alerts are in place for the rivers Burn, Waveney, Yare, Bure, Ant and Thurne. 

This affects areas including Brundall, Thorpe St Andrew, Haddiscoe, Hickling, Burnham Thorpe and South Creake.

Last month South Creake was heavily impacted by flooding with road closures in place for several days and fire crews called to assist local people.

The Environment Agency said: "River levels remain higher than normal in response to high groundwater levels following the rainfall this winter.

"The rest of today will be dry with no significant rainfall, but we are expecting two fronts of heavy rainfall, beginning Thursday morning, and overnight into Friday, and we may see levels rise in response."

Water levels are also being impacted by tidal water moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth and restricting the normal drainage of the Broads river system out to sea.
