It's been widely reported that rainfall has been in short supply across the Anglia region this spring, but on Wednesday the heavens finally opened.
Overnight, we had twice as much as we'd previously had in the whole of May which was welcome news for gardeners among others.
The rain isn't expected to last though, with more settled conditions expected to return next week.
