"A couple of drivers were seen tonight to ignore signs and still drive towards the water measuring 94cm!

"Please observe the water depth boards and plan your route prior to your journey."

An Environment Agency flood alert remains in force for the Welney Causeway area, together with warnings for the Little Ouse River and River Thet, including Hockwold, and the River Nar affecting Marham, Narborough, Saddlebow, Setch and St Germans.
