The Met Office has also issued a yellow weather alert for rain for the area, which began yesterday at 5pm and continues until 9pm today.

It warns that heavy rain falling on saturated ground is likely to cause some travel disruption.

It comes as the authority has issued a more serious amber alert for wind for other parts of Norfolk, including Diss, Thetford and Norwich, as well as Cambridge.
