Flooding hits Broads village

Businesses in a village on the Norfolk Broads have been hit by flooding. A mixture of Spring tides, westerly winds and the rapid thaw of snow have caused problems in Horning near Norwich.

The Ferry pub and a fish and chip shop in Ferry Road are both closed because of flooding and the manager of a local boat hire company is having to take staff to and from work by boat. Although the water is receding, it's still more than a foot deep in places.

Flood warning: East of Peterborough

The Environment Agency has issued at Flood Warning for North Bank Road alongside the River Nene to the east of Peterborough and the West of the Dog-in-a-Doublet Sluice.

There are 18 Flood Warnings in force across the Anglia region. Click here for more details.

"Heavy rain combined with snow melt has caused river levels to rise at the River Nene. During periods of high tide, the high river levels will be unable to discharge into the sea, resulting in tide lock conditions. This is likely to lead to flooding of North Bank Road.Whilst the Flood Warning is in force, the Local Authority will close North Bank Road. Diversionary routes will be put in place."
