The Environment Agency has reissued many of Norfolk's flood alerts and warnings as heavy rain batters the county.

Two areas have been placed on a red warning and people are advised to "act now" along the River Nar at Narborough, Marham, Wormegay and Saddle Bow and the River Burn from South Creake to Burnham Thorpe.

The agency advises people to move vehicles to higher ground, and important items upstairs and to avoid "any unnecessary danger".

The Met Office's chief meteorologist, Paul Gundersen, said: "Most places within the warning areas are likely to see 10mm to 15mm of rain, with a chance of 30mm to 40mm in a few places.

"This is falling on saturated ground, which elevates the chances of flooding and disruption.”

Ten flood alerts have also been issued covering the Norfolk Broads, Diss, Thetford, King's Lynn and Fakenham.
