Reports on social media have suggested that water had to be pumped away from the car park of the village's doctors' surgery.

At around the same time, the service said an officer was despatched to the Searles Leisure complex in Hunstanton to give flooding advice.

Elsewhere, Terrington-based crews were called to help with flooding on Clenchwarton Road, West Lynn at around 2.55pm.

A few minutes earlier, Downham crews were despatched to Elm Road, Upper Marham.

A yellow Met Office weather warning for heavy rain remains in place until 9pm this evening, though current forecasts suggest the worst of the weather is now clearing the area.
