And the ground where King's Lynn Town Reserves play their home matches, Wisbech's Fenland Stadium, has also sustained damage.

Power cuts are also affecting several hundred residents across West Norfolk, as engineers battle against the conditions, while rail services are also severely disrupted.

Winds are currently gusting up to more than 60 miles per hour, according to the Met Office, though they are forecast to ease slightly this evening.

An amber weather warning remains in force until 9pm tonight.
