Mud and debris cover the quay side in King's Lynn after the previous evening's storm surge came within inches of breaching the flood barriers.

Power was interrupted for nearly 50 homes and businesses on Lynn’s waterfront last night.

UK Power Networks engineers had to cut supplies to 46 customers in the South Quay and King’s Staithes Square area yesterday due to flood risk.

A spokesman said: “Power was off between 7.02pm and 2.08am today (Friday, December 6) and we would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

UK Power Networks engineers also helped the fire service pump out floodwater from the Sea Life Sanctuary, Hunstanton, just before 1am today.
