Three flood alerts have been issued across the Norfolk Broads after a day of heavy rain.

The Environment Agency has deemed that flooding is "possible" in these three areas.

Large parts of the Norfolk Broads are at risk after heavy showers and high tides increased river levels.

The alerts cover riverside roads and homes by the Rivers Bure, Ant and Thurne, the River Waveney from Ellingham to Breydon Water and the River Yare by Thorpe St Andrew.

The agency has advised people to have a bag ready with items such as insurance documents and medications in case they have to leave their homes suddenly.

A spokesman for the Environment Agency said: "We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate, or to issue any further warning messages at this time.

"Take care on waterside roads and footpaths, and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger."

The alerts were issued just after 10am and are set to last the next 24 hours.
