WEST NORFOLK: Fire crews alerted to flooding problems as thaw sets in
Firefighters were called to tackle flooding problems at homes in two West Norfolk villages overnight as the thaw of recent snow begins in earnest.
Crews from the Methwold station pumped water out of a flooded property on Main Road, Crimplesham, at around 3.20am this morning, Sunday.
At around the same time, a fire officer was giving flooding advice in Chequers Road, Wretton.
A Norfolk Fire Service spokesman said both incidents had been caused by the weather.
Fire crews are currently dealing with several flooding incidents across the county, though no further problems have been reported in the west of the county.
Police are also warning drivers to take care on the county’s roads today because of floods in several areas.
They say many of them are too deep to drive through safely.
However, the Environment Agency has so far not issued any flood warnings in West Norfolk, though there is a flood alert in force for the River Wensum between Great Ryburgh and Lenwade.
