Fifteen flood alerts and warnings have been issued across Norfolk today.

People in many parts of the county have been warned to "act now" by the Environment Agency.

Two red warnings are in place in the Norfolk Broads with properties along the River Yare and Waveney including Cantley, Brundall, Reedham and Norwich most at risk.

Those living in these areas have been urged to "stay safe and be prepared with a flood kit of essential items, should you need to evacuate your home”.

Areas to the north of the Broads are also at risk as flood alerts have been issued along the Rivers Bure, Ant and Thurne to Stalham as well as coastal areas in Sea Palling and Horsey.

Much of the north Norfolk coast has also been issued with flood alerts.

The alerts are in place due to high spring tides brought on by strong winds which are expected to peak tonight.
