West Norfolk flooding problems 'set to continue all week', Environment Agency warns




The Environment Agency has warned that flooding problems along part of a West Norfolk river could continue all week.

A flood warning remains in force this afternoon for the River Burn between South Creake and Burnham Thorpe.

Several other flood alerts are also in place, including one for North West Norfolk rivers such as the Heacham River, the Ingol, Babingley River and Gaywood River.

In its latest guidance today, the agency said flooding to low-lying land and roads near the Burn was likely to continue throughout this week, though they do not expect the situation to escalate.

Flood alerts also remain in place for the River Nar between Litcham and South Lynn, the River Wissey between Bradenham and Denver, plus the Little Ouse River between Rickinghall and Hockwold.

The alerts follow a weekend in which firefighters were called to help with flooding problems in Lynn and several other West Norfolk villages, including North and South Creake, Walpole St Peter, Feltwell, Sedgeford, Dersingham and Stow Bardolph.

This morning, a fire service officer was also called to a property in Hay Green, Terrington St Clement, shortly before 8am to give flooding advice.
